Talk on mindfulness by Joseph Goldstein
This is worth watching. The talk proper begins at 20:50 after a guided meditation and lasts about 40 minutes, after which there is a Q&A session.
In summary he says that:
- Mindfulness is living in the present, but it is more than that.
- Mindfulness is developing the observing power of the mind, but it is more than that.
- Mindfulness is also observing with skillful attitude, without the filters of craving, aversion and delusion - or at least being aware when those are present ( this corresponds roughly to the 3rd frame of reference in the Satipatthana Sutta ).
