Mind and mental qualities[edit]

Could someone explain the difference between 'the mind' and 'mental qualities' as described under 'Right Mindfulness'?

It's a very lengthy and in-depth topic, but a very basic distinction to make is that "the mind" is the perceiving/conceiving entity, while "mental qualities" are the perceptions/conceptions.
Mind is your sense and Mental qualities are trained, learned, practiced, taught and meditated mental qualities. Mind is instinct. Mental qualities is cultivated, trained, meditated and practiced mind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:52, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
For instance, see the following site: There, it defines the mind "as a non-physical phenomenon which perceives, thinks, recognises, experiences and reacts to the environment". Later, it points out the so-called "51 Mental Factors", which include such things as intention, concentration, regret, ignorance, etc. These latter are, more or less, what is referred to in the phrase "mental qualities".
Hope this has been of some help. —Saposcat 11:24, 31 October 2005 (GMT +02:00)
Yes, that's wonderful. 31 October 2005 (GMT +02:00)
Mind and Body are dependent. If one of Body or Mind destructs both destructed. I have been called Body, which is Five Aggregates. Which are Rupa, Waydanat, Tinnyat, Thinkarrat and Winnyarnat. Rupa means One or whole body. Waydanat means sufferings. Thinnyat means Knowledge. Thinkarrat means no everlasting. Winnyarnat means attachment to mind. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thannaingoo36 (talkcontribs) 23:52, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Today Buddhism reviews[edit]

You have to know four Noble Truths [1]. First of all you must know Dukkha Thitsar (the affect of Samudaya). The Dukkha Thitsar means suffering, lamentation, you stay in vicious cycle,very sad, and so on. Samudaya Thitsar is the cause of Dukkha Thitsar. Samudaya Thitsar means stings, attachment to five aggregate(which mean Body, Mind, Suffering, Knowing, Change of our Aggregates). Magga Thitsar is the eight paths to attain Nirvana or Niroda Thitsar. Magga Thitsar means eight paths. Eight Paths are right view, right mindfulness, right doing, right talking, right livelihood, right effort , right concentration and right thinking. Niyoda Thitsar is Liberation. Which depends on Magga Thitsar.

To attain Enlightenment you have to learned Noble Eightfold Path [1], Three Characteristics, and Four Noble Truths [2].

Noble Eightfold Paths are right understanding, right concentration, right mind, right think, right attempt, right job, right action, and right speech.

Three Characteristics are change, suffering, and own nothing.

Four Noble Truths are Suffering Truth, Attachment Truth, Noble Eightfold Paths, and Liberation from Suffering and Attachment.

Four Mindfulness[edit]

Four Mindfulness are knowing your body , mind, suffering and dhamma(pali) sermons.


You have to be cautious your breath in, breath out. You mind your movements. You mind your activity. You mind your whole body every time.


You have to be cautious your mind by knowing happy, sad, escaped, confined, calm, confused, and so on.


Your have to be cautious your suffering by knowing pain, sorrow, lamentation, excruciation, and so on.


You have to learn, study, teach, discuss, know, understand and think on Buddha sermons.

What is meant?[edit]

Under "The Eightfold Path" it says: "Right View: To get the right enlightenment the other world"

Under "The Eightfold Path" it says: "Right View: To acknowledge the right path"

Not a complete sentence and no idea how to fix it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A00:801:250:B6E1:1065:BD9B:C268:2967 (talk) 21:26, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
