The Teaching on the Aids to Enlightenment

The Noble Mahāyāna Sūtra “The Teaching on the Aids to Enlightenment”
Summary wrote:In response to a series of queries from Mañjuśrī, Buddha Śākyamuni first exposes the error that prevents sentient beings in general from transcending saṃsāra, and then focuses more particularly on errors that result from understanding the four truths of the noble ones based on conceptual notions of phenomena. He then goes on to explain how someone wishing to attain liberation should skillfully view the following five sets of qualities: (1) the four truths, (2) the four applications of mindfulness, (3) the eightfold path, (4) the five faculties, and (5) the seven branches of enlightenment.
Lacking mindfulness, we commit every wrong. - Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
