Dharmette: Satipaṭṭhāna (31) Skeleton Contemplation

Gil Fronsdal
By: Gil Fronsdal

As if a practitioner were to see a corpse cast away in a charnel ground, [reduced to] bones not held by tendons, scattered in all directions – here a hand bone, there a foot bone, here a shin bone, there a thigh bone, here a pelvis, there a spine, here a jaw bone, there a tooth, here a skull – to this, one connects one’s own body, "This body too has a nature like this, will become like this, will not avoid this."
