Can you explain where this classification comes from? Which teaching?
Root condition. Buddhist training is directed towards eliminating the defilements (kilesā). Themikenz66 wrote: ↑Sat Aug 04, 2018 10:08 pmCan you explain where this classification comes from? Which teaching?
The three levels of the mind above seems to be three levels of defilements. B. Bodhi wrote in his book, the 8 fold path, defilements are stratified into three layers, latent, manifestation and trangression. Mind=defilements?
https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitak ... .than.htmlYou shouldn't chase after the past or place expectations on the future. What is past is left behind. The future is as yet unreached. Whatever quality is present you clearly see right there, right there. Not taken in, unshaken, that's how you develop the heart. Ardently doing what should be done today, for — who knows? — tomorrow death. There is no bargaining with Mortality & his mighty horde. Whoever lives thus ardently, relentlessly both day & night, has truly had an auspicious day: so says the Peaceful Sage.

And what is the faculty of mindfulness? There is the case where a monk, a disciple of the noble ones, is mindful, highly meticulous, remembering & able to call to mind even things that were done & said long ago. SN 48.10

SN 1.10 Arañña Sutta: A Face So Calm
Those who abide in the forest,
Peaceful, living the holy life;
Those who eat but a single meal;
— why is it their face is so calm?
They do not grieve over the past,
Nor do they yearn for the future;
They live only in the present
— That is why their face is so calm.
It's from yearning for the future,
And from grieving over the past;
This is how fools become withered
— Like a fresh reed that's been hacked down.
