In Myanmar, I also practice a well-known Meditation method for 4 years which teaches the mental noting upon relative truths(samuti sacca
It has a lot of benefits for me via this way for calmness but not yet the real wisdom/insight.
I think Samatha way should be known as Samatha way and Vipassana way should be knowns as Vipassana way which is concerning with insight/wisdom.
I just present the attitudes of the most of meditation teachers/meditators in Myanmar nowadays.
Most of meditation teachers in myanmar point out this fact that mental noting alone is just Samatha meditation.
Here links are the well-known insight meditation teachers in Myanmar point out this fact.
What do you think about it?http://sayadawutejaniya.org/teachings/http://onlymiddleway.multiply.com/music/item/3
Awareness(mental noting) alone is not enough for enlightenment. (Ashin Tejaniya)Created truths(Sammuti Sacca)
are just to be used only, experienced only and known only
Without rejecting and attaching them with the idea of reality.Vipassana
(Insight meditation) is changing from the volitional action to action-only, attachment to detachment, misunderstanding to right understanding.
