Five Faculties: Faith, effort, mindfulness, samadhi, wisdom. Faculties are innate but can be directed in many ways. Faith is confidence. Effort is energy. Mindfulness is knowing what you're doing while you're doing it. Samadhi is undistractedness, unifying, stabilizing, steadying, continuous contact. Samadhi is that ground that allows wisdom to arise. Wisdom is knowing what's skillful, seeing things as they are.
