SEVEN FACTORS OF ENLIGHTENMENT
In Buddhism, the Seven Factors of Enlightenment are:
MINDFULNESS (sati) i.e. to remember the Dhamma.
INVESTIGATION (dhamma vicaya) of the Dhamma.
JOY or rapture (pīti)
RELAXATION or tranquility (passaddhi) of both body and mind
CONCENTRATION (samādhi) a calm, one-pointed state of concentration of mind
EQUANIMITY (upekkha), to be able to face life in all its vicissitudes with calm of mind and tranquility, without disturbance, with dispassion and detachment.
This set of seven enlightenment factors is one of the “Seven Sets” of “Enlightenment-related states” (bodhipakkhiyadhamma).
The Pali word bojjhanga is a compound of bodhi (“enlightenment”) and anga (“factor”).
