[1][pts] At Sāvatthī.

"Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu should dwell mindful.

This is our instruction to you.

"And how, bhikkhus, is a bhikkhu mindful?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells contemplating the body in the body, ardent, clearly comprehending, mindful, having removed covetousness and displeasure in regard to the world.

He dwells contemplating feelings in feelings ... mind in mind ... phenomena in phenomena, ardent, clearly comprehending, mindful, having removed covetousness and displeasure in regard to the world.

It is in this way, bhikkhus, that a bhikkhu is mindful.

"Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu should dwell mindful.

This is our instruction to you."
