Description: Ongoing series on basic Buddhism. To achieve concentration in practice, one must have established the four foundations of mindfulness. Having ardent alertness, clearly comprehending all that arises within and around the body, its feelings, the mind, and other phenomena, the practitioner overcomes the unwholesome states of mind that pose as hindrances to a fruitful practice.
