Dharmabyte: Diving to the Depths

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 19 Apr, 2021 - 06:00

Satyalila gives us a clear and practical guide to how our spiritual journey can consist in transforming the ‘poisons’ (greed, hatred, delusion, pride and envy) with (and ultimately into) the five spiritual faculties (faith, wisdom, mindfulness, samadhi and energy-in-pursuit-of-the-good). It concludes with a look at how the five Buddha mandala offers an imaginative representation of the faculties as qualities of the Buddha’s Enlightened mind.

Excerpted from the talk entitled Let Your Poison Be Your Cure given at the ...

By mokshini on Sat, 3 Dec, 2016 - 11:41

The Five Spiritual Faculties
Here are three pdfs by Dhammaloka on the Five Spiritual Faculties.

One is on  suggestions for how to translate the Five Indriyas (the spiritual faculties of faith, wisdom, mindfulness, vigour, and meditation) into precepts for daily life [the-five-spiritual-faculties-in-everyday-life.pdf]

Then there is an article exploring in detail how the faculties may be balanced with each other, and also introducing the ‘near enemies’ of each faculty [the-five-spiritual-faculties-and-near-enemies.pdf]

Lastly we’ve got a diagram used in workshops on ‘work as practice’ to help people check their balance...
