The Five Spiritual Faculties (Indriyas) – Dharma Talk by David Sudar (8-10-2021)


Originally given on 8/10/2021 at the Path of Sincerity Tuesday night Sangha, by David Sudar.


One of the classic lists that Sayadaw U Tejaniya frequently draws upon is the five spiritual faculties.  These five include faith, effort, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom.  In this talk, we’ll explore them both individually and how they feed into each other.  Sometimes Sayadaw refers to “the meditating mind,” and largely what he’s talking about is a mind that has all five of these faculties active.
