Joseph Goldstein – Insight Hour – Ep. 22 – Clear Comprehension


Our Dharma practice can be broadly understood as the process of learning to live in harmony with the fundamental truths of nature and our place within it.

The objective precision of the Buddha’s teachings provides a powerful framework for an investigation into the heart of these experiential matters. Joseph explores the quality of mind known in Pali as Sampajanna, highlighting its ability to add the dimensions of investigation and wisdom to the practice of mindfulness. The ability to clearly know what is taking place is as essential as it is profound.

“It’s when we’re holding that view, that there is an I, a self, a mind, behind the experience to whom it’s happening, when we’re holding that view, that’s what locks us in to a very deeply rooted pattern of delusion,..We have to use this mindfulness… to see what is actually here, what is the nature of this experience… to see everything with clear wisdom.”
