A DHARMA TALK HANDOUT.
The Five Hindrances are:
desire, aversion, sloth and torpor, restlessness, and doubt.
This month continue your sitting practice of being mindful of the breath, body sensations, emotions and thoughts.
Read the section on the hindrances in the Sattipatthana Sutta before you sit.
Notice the presence or absence of the hindrances in your meditation and daily life.
Can you become aware of the conditions that allow a hindrance to arise, to persist or to cease?
