In this talk Mahabodhi explores the meaning of the Sanskrit term ‘samjna’ (Pali ‘sanna’). Often translated as ‘perception’ (but more accurately ‘apperception’) it performs a pivotal role in meditation practice. By bringing mindfulness to our samjna in the metta bhavana, the mindfulness of breathing and in insight practice we effect the required transformation of our view. Ground covered includes the dhyanas, views in general, Right View and unenlightened tendencies called asravas. Given at Triratna Night on Monday 20th November. The post Insight and Perception appeared first on Manchester Buddhist Centre.
