An Unentangled Knowing – Lessons in Training the Mind is Upasika Kee Nanayon, who wrote by the name Acharn Kor Kaho-suan-luang, is one of the most respected women teachers of Dhamma in modern Thailand. The teachings in this book, drawn from her talks and poetry, deal with a wide range of issues in the training of the mind. In addition to covering techniques of meditation, such as mindfulness of breathing and the contemplation of the body, they go beyond technique to deal with habits of the meditator’s heart.
“Whenever defilement rises up to get anything, to grab hold of anything, we don’t play along. We let go. Just this is enough to do away with a lot of stress and suffering, even though the defilements feel the heat. When we oppress the defilements a lot in this way, it gets them hot and feverish. But remember, it’s the defilements that get hot and feverish. If we don’t put the heat on them, they put the heat on us all the time.”
