The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
with Christine Wetzl & Adam Sultan
“According to the buddhadharma, spirituality means relating with the working basis of one’s existence, which is one’s state of mind. The method for beginning to relate directly with mind is the practice of mindfulness.”
-Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Mindfulness is a basic approach to the spiritual journey that is common to all traditions of Buddhism. It is the basic method for beginning to relate directly with mind as taught by Buddha and has been in use for the past twenty-five hundred years. There are four aspects to this practice, traditionally known as the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. According to Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche these four foundations are:
- Mindfulness of Body
- Mindfulness of Life
- Mindfulness of Effort
- Mindfulness of Mind
