mindfulness p li sati sanskrit sm ti
“mindfulness”

Pāli: sati सतिः

Sanskrit: smṛtiस्मृतिः

candamah rosana tantra
CandamahārosanaTantra

To renounce the sense objects

Is to torture oneself by asceticism—don't do it!

When you see form, look!

Similarly, listen to sounds,

Inhale scents,

Taste delicious flavors,

Feel textures.

Use the objects of the five senses -

You will quickly attain supreme Buddhahood.

Chapter Eight of the Sri-candamaharosana-tantra

Translated by Keith Dowman.

“With the spread of scientific knowledge, Christianity with its unscientific doctrines of creator, hell, soul, atonement, will be quite forgotten. With the expansion of knowledge Europeans may come to know more of evolution, of the laws of causation, of the changing nature of all phenomena, of the divisibility of matter, of the progressive nature of the animal and human consciousness, then will Buddhism meet with a sympathetic reception”
