The Five Eyes of Buddhism

Here are the notes relating to our latest Mindfulness Exercise, "Loving Eyes".


Five Eyes
1) heavenly eye, 2) flesh-eye, 3) Dharma-eye, 4) wisdom-eye, 5) Buddha-eye.

Those five non-corporeal 'eyes' are possessed by Buddhas and other enlightened beings. They can also begin to function to varying degrees in people who are not enlightened but are cultivating or who have cultivated in past lives.
