Levels of Awareness: Right Mindfulness

by Sangharakshita

Forgetfulness and distraction are the rule in ordinary life, but awareness and a 'fullness of mind' is at the heart of human growth and development. Sangharakshita distinguishes four dimensions of awareness, each with its own qualities: awareness of things, self, others, and reality.

Talk given in 1968.

This talk is part of the series The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path.
