The Eight Awarenesses of Enlightenment, or Aspects of Enlightenment are the characteristics that distinguish a Buddhist. Coming from the Mahayana’s Mahaparinirvana Sutra, these eight are:
1. Freedom from desire
4. Meticulous effort (diligence)
5. Correct remembrance (right mindfulness)
6. Samadhi (Concentration)
7. Prajna (Wisdom)
8. Avoiding idle talk
Smile and be well!
