Walking Stage 2 | Techniques In Vipassana Meditation

Walking Stage 2 | Techniques In Vipassana Meditation.

Note : "lifting", "treading"

Method of practice :

The meditator starts to contemplate the state of standing and an initial mind that is an intention to walk, move the awareness to the lifting of the left or right foot. At the time of lifting, "lifting" is noted. Noting "lifting" must finish at the same time as the end of the lifting movement. The important is that neither should the foot be lifted over the ankle level nor moved too far. While putting the foot down on the floor, note "treading" and finish it at the same time as the end of the stepping the foot on the floor.

At the second stage of walking, the important point is being attentive of the lifting of the foot and the treading. Although, at the time of treading, it feels like there is a movement of the body forwards a little bit, the meditator doesn't need to attend to it; he only needs to be mindful ofthe lifting and the treading of the foot. Walking in this stage seems to be uneasy or uncomfortable or unnatural. Some masters suggest that the meditator pass into the third stage of walking. As a matter of fact, if you are more attentive to it you will discover something special because the lifting and treading of the foot are very frequent and the walk is flexible and relaxing in each lifting and treading.

The duration of the walk is not fixed or certain. In accordance with the principle, the meditator must become aware of the knowledge of the causes of the "RUPA" and "NAMA" clearly (paccayapariggahanana). Only after that can the further stage of walking be allowed. In the second stage of walking, there is an additional thing, that is to say the contemplation of the initial mind or the "desire".

However, the desire here is not a kind of craving, but the moral determination at the time of practicing the Four Foundations of Mindfulness which is the conduct for the purpose of deserting attachment to the Five Aggregates (Khandha 5). As a common practice, the meditator contemplates three times before walking; for instance, "wanting to walk", "wanting to walk", "wanting to walk" or "intending to walk" and then walks.
