Abstract:

This paper first reviews key Buddhist concepts of time anicca (impermanence), khanavada (instantaneous being) and uji (being time) and then describes the way in which a particular form of Bhuddist meditation, vipassana, may be thought to actualize them in human experience. The chief aim of the paper is to present a heuristic model of how vipassana meditation, by eroding dispositional tendencies rooted in the body-unconscious alters psychological time, transforming our felt-experience of time from a binding to a liberating force.

Keywords: Buddhism; Buddhist meditation; anicca; body-unconscious; consciousness; dispositional tendencies; khanavada; meditation; time; uji; vipassana
