Reflections for “Mindfulness of Mind (Citta)“

by | Jan 23, 2024 | Buddhism.net Blog

The post titled Mindfulness of Mind (Citta) is now up on Buddhism for All. Angela from the Buddhism.net team reflected on it, and invites you to do so too.

🌕 Angela’s Reflections:

Mindfulness of mind (Pali: cittanupassanā) is to know the state of the mind no matter what we are engaged in, and to know whether our mind is afflicted by greed, anger, delusion, and whether it is concentrated or liberated. Practice with guided meditations on mindfulness of mind to be familiar with the state of your mind. The power of having mindfulness of mind is that when you are in a state of anger, you know. When you are in a state of attachment, you know. And when the mind is occluded by delusion, there is knowing as well. 

🌱 Journal Reflection Prompts for You:

  • 📝 What is the state of your mind now? And what about now? And now?

  • 📝 Why would cultivating mindfulness of mind be important to you? What difference would it make in your life?
