Question: What is absent mindedness?
Answer: Absent mindedness is mind being anywhere. Whenever you are occupied with anything, it is absent mindedness. Any act of focus, concentration, having ‘something’ as important in mind, becoming a subject,
all these are acts of absent-mindedness. Mind busy with any object is absent-mindedness.
Mind busy with an object is a mind busy with something except the Present. This is being absent.
