BODY CONTEMPLATION AS FOUNDATION OF MINDFULNESS
(Kayanupassana Satipatthana)
Within this foundation are various chapters:
1 breath
2 postures
3 clear comprehension
4 parts of the body impurities
5 four elements (earth, fire, water, and wind elements)
6-14 cemetery contemplation of corpses at different stages of
decay.
It is clear that some of them are initially pure tranquillity meditation
exercises but are later switched to insight meditation in the
closing verse of Satipatthana Sutta—He lives contemplating originationthings
in the body, or he lives contemplating dissolution-things in the body,
or he lives contemplating origination and dissolution-things in the body.
FEELING CONTEMPLATION AS FOUNDATION OF MINDFULNESS
(Vedananupassana Satipatthana)
There are nine types of feelings here, which serve as objects of
mindfulness. The first to the third are: pleasurable, painful, neither
pleasurable nor painful.
These three are then further noted with regards to being carnal
(fourth to sixth) or spiritual (seventh to ninth).
CONSCIOUSNESS CONTEMPLATION AS FOUNDATION OF
MINDFULNESS (Cittanupassana Satipatthana)
Those consciousness which can be the objects of mindfulness are:
1 consciousness
