Ratnaprabha introduces the three types of mindfulness in Buddhism, and how they fit into the balanced mandala of five faculties, which also include confidence, energy, unification of mind, and insight. Mindfulness represents the integration aspect of Dharma life.
In the third 'Budcast' in the series 'The World Is Burning', Ratnaprabha describes how craving and ill will are mistaken responses that cause our experience of lack and frustration: they arise from delusion. The opposite of delusion is wisdom or insight. What is wisdom is Buddhism, how does it relate to mindfulness and awareness, and how can it be cultivated?
Budcast number two. Ill will is painful to oneself, and can lead to active hostility, yet we nurse our grievances. Why is this, is anger wrong, and how do you cultivate kindness? The second podcast on 'The World is Burning', the Buddha's teaching to the fire worshippers on Compulsion, Hostility, and Confusion, including the Buddha's encounter with the fire dragon (naga).
