(lit. 'ways of movement'): 'bodily postures', i.e. going, standing, sitting, lying. In the Satipatthāna-sutta (s. satipatthāna), they form the subject of a contemplation and an exercise in mindfulness.
"While going, standing, sitting or lying down, the monk knows 'I go', 'I stand', 'I sit', 'I lie down'; he understands any position of the body." - "The disciple understands that there is no living being, no real ego, that goes, stands, etc., but that it is by a mere figure of speech that one says: 'I go', 'I stand', and so forth."
