6. Description Abstract This chapter instructs on the focusing of attention on an object in a non-grasping manner, and the benefits this brings: quietening the mind, and centering the object of meditation, particularly the motion of the breath. This raises the mind to one-pointedness, eventually unifying other mental factors in pure awareness. This concentration of the mind is shown to be a factor in developing mindfulness and insight, which in turn lead to wisdom, compassion and peace. A sketch is used to explain the function of the diaphragm in the movement of lungs and belly.
