Abstract: 2nd to 4th items of the seven bojjhanga “Factors of Awakening” in the satipatthana bhavana, “Establishing of Mindfulness meditation”, the methodology specifically formulated by the Buddha as the “one way” or “direct path” (ekayano maggo) to liberation, namely, Nibbana. There is probably no more succinct an example than the placing of the three, in their intended logical sequence, that speaks to the interactive process among cognition, praxis and affection. The practitioner begins in the cognitive investigation of Dhamma), puts the mind into an active mode based in the cognition, thus engaging in praxis (effort), which in turn comes to impact upon the affective (joy). This paper seeks to establish the intricate and complex web of interrelationships between and among the trio cognition, praxis and affection in relation to the total Discourse.
