CONCENTRATION
CONVICTION
PERSISTENCE
DISCERNMENT
MINDFULNESS

I’ve adopted these words as my prayer prior to my meditation.
They are from the book entitled:
“THINGS AS THEY ARE”
by Venerable Acariya Maha Boowa Nanasampanno.

Concentration
Firmness of the heart in following the path and food for the journey.

Conviction
The path to be followed for good results.

Persistence
Making the effort to follow the path unflaggingly.

Mindfulness
Is what guides our efforts as we follow the path.

Discernment
Circumspection in following the path step-by-step from beginning to end.
