The three columns. Sharpening Mindfulness. Samadhi: one part of the Eightfold Path (not an option). The knowing quality of the Citta. Duality.

Development of wisdom. Undermining the three fetters. The citta and the body. The wagon simile. Sotappana, the stream-enterer. The roller coaster of rebirth. The bull’s hairs and the bull’s horns: an example of the Lord Buddha. The fetters of greed and hate. Reflections about the body. A garbage factory simile. The body: why do we put up with? Undermining greed and hate and getting rid of them. Anagami, the non-returner.
