The Seven Factors of Awakening - Daniel Ingram's Framework

A picture is worth a thousand words. Actually, there are many words in this picture ... Here's a brief summary of MCTB2 chapter on The Seven Factors of Awakening, where Daniel displays a really comprehensive framework that I find very handy for my insight practices. Please, send me any correction required, either grammar or of comprehension of the subject. Probably there are topics that need more space or that I haven't catch properly Daniel's tone.  

Edit: changed from a JPG to PNG for better visualization and then some typos

I include here Daniel's Hierarchy of Vipassana Practice, as it's much related to his insight framework described in the OP.

I include here Daniel's descriptions of the Three Characteristics, the key thing to investigate in his framework, and what differences vipassana from concentration practices. For now, Anicca and Dukkha only. Anatta will come later, as it's more challenging to summarize, as perhaps there's more info spread throughout the books (both versions, eg. MCTB1 has a No-Self vs True-Self that's missing in MCTB2, but parts (edit: most) of it are found in The True-Self Models chapter) that in it's specific (yet introductory) chapter.

Thanks, Pepe!

Noticed a typo on the Dukkha sheet in the Practice section where an "or" is an "o".

May our work help many!

Anatta is a much more complex topic, so I spread the summary in three pages. Texts were picked up from different chapters (The Three Characteristics, True Self Models, A Revised Four Path Model). Dependent Origination is a related topic, but left out here, because of its depth.

Pepe, thank you so much for this great work! The condensation and intensification is very potent.

Thanks Tim! I'm nowadays doing a compilation of Daniel's posts at DhO, much like Shargrol's . There's a lot of wisdom, practice tips, books recommendations and DhO history buried in his posts.

Pepe, to possibly overstep an analogy, if MCTB2 is scripture-like, then things like the Shargrol and Daniel compilations will be more like Mishnah or Talmud--- exegesis, nuances, debates among the rabbis, commentary, stories, songs, myths, pragmatics of community, etc. It's a marvelous thing to do, and I'm also very grateful that you're doing it in English, not Aramaic!

The honor is mine, Daniel. Happy to serve the DhO community. This Talmud of sorts - as Tim says emoticon - would eventually have links to both DhO forum and mctb.org/mctb2. Extrapolating with what I've already been doing, the compilation could end up being 550,000 words, as long as MCTB2... I'm doing it little by little, as I find free time. It will take several months. Be patient please
