Kayagata-sati Sutta: Mindfulness Immersed in the Body translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu X The updated version is freely available at This version of the text might be out of date. Then the Blessed One, emerging from his seclusion in the late afternoon, went to the meeting hall and, on arrival, sat down on a seat made ready. As he was sitting there, he addressed the monks: "For what topic are you gathered together here?
And what was the discussion that came to no conclusion? Always mindful, he breathes in; mindful he breathes out. This is how a monk develops mindfulness immersed in the body.
This is rice. These are mung beans. These are kidney beans. These are sesame seeds. There is nothing of his entire body unpervaded with pleasure divested of rapture. He sits, permeating the body with a pure, bright awareness. Just as if a man were sitting covered from head to foot with a white cloth so that there would be no part of his body to which the white cloth did not extend; even so, the monk sits, permeating the body with a pure, bright awareness.
There is nothing of his entire body unpervaded by pure, bright awareness. What do you think, monks — would the heavy stone ball gain entry into the pile of wet clay? What do you think — would he get a place to put his water? Suppose that a man were to throw a ball of string against a door panel made entirely of heartwood. What do you think — would that light ball of string gain entry into that door panel made entirely of heartwood?
If a strong man were to tip it in any way at all, would water spill out? If a strong man were to loosen the dikes anywhere at all, would water spill out?
Which ten? He remains victorious over any displeasure that has arisen. Having been one he becomes many; having been many he becomes one.
He appears. He vanishes. He walks on water without sinking as if it were dry land. Sitting crosslegged he flies through the air like a winged bird. He exercises influence with his body even as far as the Brahma worlds. He discerns a mind with passion as a mind with passion, and a mind without passion as a mind without passion.
He discerns a mind with aversion as a mind with aversion, and a mind without aversion as a mind without aversion. He discerns a mind with delusion as a mind with delusion, and a mind without delusion as a mind without delusion. He discerns a restricted mind as a restricted mind, and a scattered mind as a scattered mind. He discerns an enlarged mind as an enlarged mind, and an unenlarged mind as an unenlarged mind. He discerns an excelled mind  as an excelled mind, and an unexcelled mind as an unexcelled mind.
He discerns a concentrated mind as a concentrated mind, and an unconcentrated mind as an unconcentrated mind. He discerns a released mind as a released mind, and an unreleased mind as an unreleased mind. Passing away from that state, I re-arose there. There too I had such a name, belonged to such a clan, had such an appearance. Passing away from that state, I re-arose here. Note Excelled mind: A mind that is not at the most excellent level, as it can be excelled by another.

Demikian telah saya dengar: Pada suatu ketika Sang Bhagava sedang berdiam di Jetavana, Anathapindikarama, kota Savatthi. Ketika itu beberapa bhikkhu sedang duduk di upatthana sala, tempat mereka bertemu setelah berkeliling pindapatta dan makan. Apakah pembicaraan yang baru terhenti tadi? Para bhikkhu, begini, setelah seorang bhikkhu pergi ke hutan, ke bawah sebuah pohon atau ke sebuah gubuk kosong dan duduk di sana; setelah duduk bersila dengan posisi tubuh tegak, ia memusatkan perhatiannya dan dengan penuh perhatian ia menarik napas dan mengeluarkan napas. Karena ia tekun berlatih, rajin, bersungguh-sungguh dan penuh disiplin diri maka semua ingatan dan keinginannya yang didasarkan pada kehidupan berkeluarga disingkirkan; dengan menyingkirkan hal-hal itu pikirannya menjadi terpusat pada dirinya sendiri, tenang, bersatu dan terkonsentrasi.
Shakakinos Would that heavy stone ball find an entry into that mound of wet clay? As to location, they grow in most of the inner skin, covering the body sjtta the site where head-hairs grow and the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. In the same manner he pervades this body, perfects it, and fills it up with pleasantness devoid of joy, touchingeverything with that pleasantness. The tooth on either side has one root, one point, and in shape like a jasmine bud. And what, bhikkhus, are the five aggregates subject to clinging?
