Vedena / Feeling Liking and Disliking


Vedena Is the second of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. Vedena Is translated as "feeling" but is not to be mistaken for the way that word is used in English to mean emotions. Vedena Is the conditioned pleasant, unpleasant or neutral response that occurs with each sense contact at the eye, ear, nose, tongue, feeling body and mind. When a person is not conscious of Vedena, he or she is at the mercy of prior conditioning, and identifies with these powerful experiences which result in action - Robert Beatty.
