BuddhaNet: Buddhist Information and Education Network document.

Excerpt: Mindfulness is the ground in which meditation is rooted. It is the source of realization of all other paths. Right mindfulness draws attention away from the fantasies of the ego, and into the reality of the present. When it is applied, there is no possibility of wrong views, resolution, speech, livelihood or effort. This Buddhist mindfulness sees the world, both objective and subjective, as process and does not lose itself in a sense of false identity. There is no true life of meditation without the application of right mindfulness. Simply sitting and doing meditation is not sufficient to bring one to enlightenment because we cannot abide forever in meditation. We must live and act in the world when we are not in meditation. The essences of meditation are tranquility, acceptance and equanimity, but these have no meaning if they are not available to us in daily life.
