Right mindfulness

One of the branches of the eightfold noble path. (a) For ordinary beings, as part of the higher training in absorbed concentration, practice of the four close placement of mindfulness. (b) For aryas, one of the three branches that serve as antidotes – namely, meditation on the sixteen aspects of the four noble truths and on their lack of the two kinds of impossible "souls" (their selflessness of persons and selflessness of phenomena) as an antidote to the obscurations that prevent a joined pair of shamatha and vipashyana (zhi-lhag zung-'brel) from being manifest continuously, because of automatically arising flightiness of mind or mental dullness.

Tibetan: ཡང་དག་པའི་དྲན་པ། yang-dag-pa'i dran-pa
