Reflections on the Seven Factors of Awakening


(mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy/rapture, calm, concentration and equanimity)

  1. In your meditation practice, see if you can identify the seven different factors of awakening. These do not necessarily have to be done in one sitting, but can be done over time.
  2. Notice the presence or absence of enlightenment factors. What are the conditions for them to arise, decrease or increase?
  3. Think of a time when your investigation of your experience led to wisdom about it.
