The Five Mindfulness Trainings

Where did the Mindfulness Trainings come from?

They had to come from somewhere.
There are three major causes and conditions that permitted their emergence.

1.The first is the awakened mind of the Buddha
2. The second is the great skill of the Buddha as a teacher
3. The third is Thich Nhat Hanh’s insightful rewording of the Five Wonderful
Precepts of the Buddha.

In a language that would appeal to the consciousness of the 21st   century, the Buddha’s mindfulness trainings were renewed, in tune with modern historical, socio-economic and cultural developments. So when we study and penetrate
deeply into the mindfulness trainings we touch all three conditions, in particular the awakened mind of the Buddha. At the same time we also touch our potential to be similarly awakened.
