Description

Chapter 3 focuses on the contemplation of feeling (vedanā), highlighting the important role of mindfulness of feeling in meditation and outlining its central position within Buddhist doctrinal models. The three modalities of feeling are introduced (i.e., pleasant, unpleasant and neither-unpleasant-nor-pleasant) and how they are related to both the body and mind, and significantly, how they are linked to craving which is viewed as the very root of suffering.
