Adeikhtan

  • Adeikhtan is translated as “Determination”.
  • It is a commitment to do something as planned.
  • It needs resolve.
  • According to the Buddhist Chronicles, the Bodhisatta (Buddha to be) made an Adeikhtan to meditate until he became Enlightened.
  • New Year Resolution is a form of Adeikhtan, but many do not seriously follow it.
  • A time-bounded Adeikhtan is easier to fulfill. At some meditation retreats, one pledges to practice mindfulness for the period (e.g. one hour).

Examples illustrating Determination

  • Try a new task every day for one year
  • Learn a new language every year
  • Master four languages in a year by living and studying with native speakers
  • Write a daily post
