I VOW WITH ALL BEINGS : From McMindfulness to Bodhisattva Mindfulness

Ricardo Toledo

Abstract


Mindfulness is only one of the aspects of a holistic and integral way.  It is only one of the eight rays that form the Noble Eightfold Path.  This is also part of the Four Noble Truths, which address suffering, its cause, its cessation and the path to liberation from it.  It is here where we find mindfulness, as one of the eight components of that noble path that leads to the cessation of suffering.  At the same time, each one of these components (views, thinking, speech, conduct, livelihood, effort, mindfulness and meditation) is divided into three areas: wisdom, ethical conduct, and mind discipline.  We find mindfulness within this last group.
