Certainly there's awareness in Satipatthana practice. That's the function of 'sampajanna'.
True, however I think it also relates to sati. I think you're trying to pigeon hole the word awareness.
Here 'sati' as 'remembrance' does not relate to remembering the past events,
This sounds a little confusing. Because you then say the following.
Meditator with developed 'sati' steadily bears in mind Buddha's instructions on what to watch for and how to apply the right efforts, cultivating skilful and abandoning unskilful behaviour.
In order to "steadily bear in mind
Buddha's instructions", you have to remember
the instructions. The instructions are past events.
bearing in mind was in my definition
Rememebering - 1.) Have in or be able to bring to one's mind an awareness of ...
to bear = to bring to. Bear in that sense means to put forth, move.
: re·mem·brance/riˈmembrəns/ Noun: The action of remembering something.
I can rephrase your statement: A meditator with developed 'sati' remembers Buddha's instructions on what to watch for...etc
If one is going to give 'sati' the definition with the forms of the verb remember
, then one has to take into account that awareness is part of an english definition of the word remember
and therefore is linked to all its tenses and forms (i.e. remembering, remembered, remembrance...etc).
if one remembers, then one has an awareness of.
may all be well
