11/18/2012 – Investigation as Meditation

Michael guided our reflections today, first by setting Investigation (dhamma vicaya) in the context of the progressive chain of the 7 Factors of Awakening (mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, calm, concentration and equanimity) and then by distinguishing the different versions of these factors which do or don’t aim at enlightenment.  The two types of investigation, analytic and intuitive, were then explored.  Ajahn Sumedho’s approach to holistic or intuitive investigation is articulated in the first 48 minutes of this talk
