Book: Teaching Awareness in the Buddhist Tradition

Chapter: 11. Living in Mindfulness and Wisdom

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44376


This essay illustrates the use of awareness, understood as the wisdom of life, finding images and parallels between the use made of it within the Christian and Buddhist paths. Presence and listening prove to be fundamental elements for spiritual transformation, to live in harmony with what surrounds us and to be in ‘love for reality.’ If awareness becomes a pervasive and all-encompassing attitude, it leads to peace of heart.
