(Sati) is a Link to
The Awareness Link to Awakening (sati-sambojjhanga)
is basically the
same mental property (sati-cetasika),
which inherently is included in:
Four Foundations of
The Ability of Awareness (satindriya)
The Power of Awareness (satibala)
Path Factor (sammā-sati-magganga)
Trained, developed and refined in a degree that gradually enlightens!
The Buddha once said:
(āsava) should be
overcome by development? If a Bhikkhu by
careful & rational
develops the Awareness Link to Awakening based on seclusion, disillusion,
ceasing, and culminating in relinquishment, neither can any fermentation,
nor any fever, nor any vexation ever arise in him.

The Ability of Awareness
is to anchor attention on any chosen object and
when this ability is unshakable & well fixed, it is the Power of
Awareness is a Foundation (patthana),
when well established (upatthana)
continually - without distractions interrupting - on these
Body as mere form: Just a group of foul and fragile organs...
2: Feeling as a mere reactive response assigned to any contact...
3: Mind as only a changing set of habitual mentalities and moods...
4: Phenomena simply as appearances of momentary mental states...
lasting, but transient! Not pleasure, but pain! Not self, but impersonal!
Neither neglecting, nor forgetting that these universal characteristics
relevant and true for absolutely all aspects of these four objects, the
and distorted perception of beauty in what really is disgusting, of
in what really is painful, of self in what really is selfless and
gradually fades away and the
(āsava) of sensing,
of views, of ignorance and of becoming are overcome by elimination.
