Notes.

[1] Mindfulness of the body `kàyagatàsati' In this sutta, mindfulness of the body is equated to deathlessness. Mindfulness of the body is nothing other than the control of the six mental faculties. The Blessed One has explained that the release with knowing `aàvimutti' is the release that one experiences when his six spheres of mental contact do not arouse feelings in any circumstance. So this is explained as deathlessness `amatapadaü' or arahanship here and now.
