Satipatthana 54: Cittānupassanā (Observation of mind) 마음관찰 8: Five spiritual faculties 3: 사마디(Samādhi)1
Samatha Samadhi is for the purpose of jhana through a state of concentration on one object.
Vipassana Samadhi has aims at developing wisdom, so you know everything that happens in the six sense organs (the eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, and mental: 眼耳鼻舌身意), it refers to ‘the serenity that naturally follows through proper understanding’.
Samadhi of Vipassana refers to momentary samadhi (Kaṇiṇka Samādhi), a calm state of mind that comes from insight wisdom through correct understanding of impermanence, suffering, and no-self. The awareness that arises moment by moment is continuous, uninterrupted awareness, and deep concentration arises from it.
Only with deep concentration can a yogi perceive the true nature of mental and physical phenomena, and this realization gives rise to the wisdom leading to the cessation of suffering.
To be continued…
May you cultivate your Sati continuously (Samma-Viriya)!
May you achieve the Samma-Diṭṭhi (Right View) through Satipatthāna (vipassana meditation)!
May all practice well and reach to Magga (道, the path of enlightenment) and Phala (果, the fruit of enlightenment)!
