 [The First Contemplation: Sun’s Contemplation]
[The] Buddha told Vaidehī, ‘You and [other] sentient beings, should focus [your] minds [with] continual mindfulness single-pointedly, [to have] contemplation of [the] West. How [to] have contemplation?
All those having contemplation, all sentient beings, [who are] personally not born blind, of disciples [who] have sight, [should] all see [the] sun set. [They] should give rise [to this] thought, upright seated westward, [with] attentive contemplating of [the] place [where the] sun almost sets, enabling [their] minds [to] firmly abide, [with] focused contemplation not moving. Seeing [the] sun almost setting, [with] shape like [a] suspended drum.
[Having] seen [the] sun already, [with] closed eyes [and] opened eyes, all enabled [to be] clearly understood, [this] is [known] as Sun’s Contemplation, named [the] First Contemplation.
