Mindfulness as a Buddhist Practice

You will find that “mindfulness” is often used synonymously with meditation. Mindfulness usually refers to the practice of intentional awareness of one’s thoughts and actions in the present moment, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness is applied to both bodily actions and the mind’s own thoughts and feelings.

In Buddhism, the second kind of mindfulness is considered a prerequisite for developing insight and wisdom. Right Mindfulness is the seventh path from the Noble Eightfold Path, which is in its turn the fourth of the Four Noble Truths.

Right mindfulness is also known as Right Meditation.
