bodhyaṇga (Pāli, bojjhaṇga). A list of seven factors that lead to or constitute bodhi, or awakening. Often referred to as the seven ‘limbs of enlightenment’, the seven items are listed in Pāli sources as:

   (1) mindfulness (sati);
   (2) investigation of the Dharma (dharma-vicaya);
   (3) energy (viriya);
   (4) joy (pīti);
   (5) tranquillity (passaddhi);
   (6) meditation (samādhi);
   (7) equanimity (upekkhā).

 The seven occur as the sixth of the 37 ‘factors of enlightenment’ (bodhi-pākṣika-dharma).
