anuttaro purisadammasārathī: 

supreme
leader of persons to be tamed - one of the attributes of the Buddha,
which appears in his standard description (for which see Buddhānussati).
See the explanation of the term given at MN 137.

Anussati
— The Recollections —
The
Buddha lists six anussatis: the Buddha, the Dhamma, the Sangha, one’s
own virtue, own’s one generosity, and the devas (see AN 6.10). The first
four are analysed here. They are most important, because they are the
verbal expression of the four sotāpatti·y·aṅgas.

Note

1.
without attachment: a-parāmaṭṭhāni - Bhikkhu Bodhi rather translates
‘not mishapprehended’ and Thanissaro Bhikkhu ‘untarnished’. The
translator follows the interpretation given by SN Goenka, according to
whom it refers here to the practice performed by certain sects, as for
example the Jains, which consists in stretching the precepts to such an
extent that observing them becomes an overly difficult task which
requires spending unreasonable amounts of time and energy.

Saḷāyatanavibhaṅga Sutta
{excerpt}
— An analysis of the senses —
[saḷāyatana-vibhaṅga]
In
this deep and very interesting sutta, the Buddha defines among other
things what are the investigations of pleasant, unpleasant and neutral
mental feelings, and also defines the expression found in the standard
description of the Buddha: ‘anuttaro purisadammasārathī’.

The eighteen explorations for
the intellect should be known’: thus was it said. And in reference to
what was it said? Seeing a form via the eye, one explores a form that
can act as the basis for happiness, one explores a form that can act as
the basis for unhappiness, one explores a form that can act as the basis
for equanimity; hearing a sound via the ear, one explores a form that
can act as the basis for happiness, one explores a form that can act as
the basis for unhappiness, one explores a form that can act as the basis
for equanimity; smelling an aroma via the nose, one explores an aroma
that can act as the basis for happiness, one explores an aroma that can
act as the basis for unhappiness, one explores an aroma that can act as
the basis for equanimity; tasting a flavor via the tongue, one explores a
flavor that can act as the basis for happiness, one explores a flavor
that can act as the basis for unhappiness, one explores a flavor that
can act as the basis for equanimity; feeling a tactile sensation via the
body, one explores a tactile sensation that can act as the basis for
happiness, one explores a tactile sensation that can act as the basis
for unhappiness, one explores a tactile sensation that can act as the
basis for equanimity; cognizing an idea via the intellect, one explores
an idea that can act as the basis for happiness, one explores an idea
that can act as the basis for unhappiness, one explores an idea that can
act as the basis for equanimity. Thus the six happiness-explorations,
the six distress-explorations, the six equanimity-explorations, the
eighteen explorations for the intellect should be known’: thus was it
said. And in reference to this was it said.

And what are the six kinds of
renunciation distress? The distress coming from the longing that arises
in one who is filled with longing for the unexcelled liberations when —
experiencing the inconstancy of those very forms, their change, fading,
& cessation — he sees with right discernment as it actually is that
all forms, past or present, are inconstant, stressful, subject to change
and he is filled with this longing: ‘O when will I enter & remain
in the dimension that the noble ones now enter & remain in?’ This is
called renunciation distress. The distress coming from the longing that

equanimity does not go beyond forms, which is why it is called household

‘Chattiṃsa sattapadā veditabbā’ti: iti yaṃ taṃ vuttaṃ idametaṃ paṭicca vuttaṃ. 

The thirty-six states to which beings are attached should be known’: thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

trainer, the horse to be tamed runs in only one direction: east, west,

he/she sees forms. This is the first direction.

Not percipient of form internally, he/she sees forms externally. This is the second direction.

Notes

1.
states to which beings are attached: Satta-pada. The question in
translating this compound is whether satta means “living being” or
“attached to.” In this translation, I have opted for both.

2.
has not conquered his limitations or the results of action: this
passage seems related to the passage in AN 3.99, which defines a person
of limited mind, prey to the results of past bad actions, as one who is
“undeveloped in contemplating the body, undeveloped in virtue,
undeveloped in concentration, and undeveloped in discernment;
restricted, small-hearted, dwelling with suffering.” As AN 3.99 points
out, such a person suffers more intensely from the results of past
unskillful actions than does one whose awareness is unrestricted. SN
42.8 recommends the practice of the four sublime attitudes as a way of
developing an unrestricted awareness that weakens the results of past
unskillful actions.

3. blind to danger: A
person who is “blind to danger” is one who does not see the drawbacks of
sensual pleasure or attachment to the body. For such a person, moments
of equanimity are usually a dull spot in the midst of the quest for
sensual pleasure. This is why such moments do not go beyond the sensory
stimulus that generated them.

25 Best Animated Infographic Examples Online
25 Best Animated Infographic
One huge problem video marketers constantly face is:
The difficulty involved in engaging a large audience with your important information and statistics.
But why is that the case?
Because
most people are going about it the wrong way! They are trying to
present their facts and figures in a format that’s not designed to
perform those functions. The result is almost always boring and
unengaging.
So, what is the right format?
Well, that’s exactly what I’m going to discuss in this post:
The Spiel guide to animated infographics with 25 of the world’s best examples!

25 of the World’s Best Animated Infographics
Conclusion
What is an Animated Infographic?
An
animated infographic is a visually appealing depiction of data, facts,
figures, and stats. They can cover any subject and, thanks to their
ability to transform often boring figures into vivid, memorable
experiences, are easily absorbable and informative for specialists and
casual viewers alike.
But, as the digital
landscape becomes more and more cluttered with content, basic image
infographics, though effective on their own, just aren’t cutting it like
they used to.
That’s where animation comes in!
By
enhancing your image with motion, it will naturally draw the attention
of the human eye. So, for maximum engagement, you should get the
audience interested with attractive animation and then keep them
interested with surprising and informative content.
“By enhancing your image with motion, it will naturally draw the attention of the human eye.”
The 10 most common styles of animated infographic are:
Maps:
For data intrinsically linked to a geographical location (or
locations), using maps to visualise it is the most effective method.
Process or How-To: Directional cues take the viewer through a series of instructional steps.
Exploded View: Each component of a product is separated in the order of assembly to get to the core of how it works.
Comparisons: Two or more similar, or dissimilar, things are compared side by side to highlight their distinctions.
Interactive:
The viewer can interact with the animated infographic by clicking on
various components for a closer look or to influence the content in some
way. Take a look at my interactive video guide for more info here.
Data Visualisation: In-depth information can be easily communicated with Venn diagrams, pie and bar charts, line graphs, etc.
Kinetic Typography: For infographic videos especially, animated moving text is a great way to convey more abstract information.
Timeline: A chronological visualisation of how something has changed or evolved over a certain time period.
Hierarchy: Various components making up a single subject are arranged in order of importance, usually using a hierarchy pyramid.
Informational
or List: Text-heavy rather than number-heavy. Ordered lists like
‘top-10s’ are a sure way to hold people’s attention.
Animated
infographics can be made for multiple reasons, such as product or
service explanations, education, recruitment, corporate videos or even
just for pure entertainment.
If you would like
to get a better idea of which style would work best for you, they are
all covered in the 25 examples at the end of this article.
How Can I Create an Attention-Grabbing Animated Infographic?
Creating
a great animated infographic is all about knowing how to find the
perfect animation company for you, then building a constructive
collaboration with them.
Here are my top 8 guidelines for doing just that:
Goals:
Before approaching agencies, set goals for your infographic that can be
measured: ‘Increase my social media following’ as opposed to ‘explain
my company history.’This will have a positive domino effect on the rest
of the campaign. It gives a good agency direction for research, which in
turn informs the key performance indicators, the budget, the content,
the art style, and so on.
Location: If you prefer to meet the
animation company in-person, only search for ones in your area. For
example, search ‘infographic animation company London’ or ‘best animated
infographic agency in London’.
Study Portfolios: Examining agencies’ portfolios and client reviews will allow you to:
See if their style and quality work for you
See if they have worked well with similar or well-renowned businesses
Save some of your favourites to reference when talking to them
Brief:
Take some time to summarise the key information that you want to be
included in the infographic as well as your brand ethos. This will help
an agency when they are formulating a creative treatment for the
project.
A True Collaboration: If an animation company is
offering you a definite quote after just one phone call, know they’re
looking for a quick sale rather than a collaboration focused on
producing a successful animated infographic.
Know the
Creatives: Firstly, you will talk to a salesperson, who will take your
information on-board and help you get a better understanding of the
process.As the project progresses, however, also make sure you’re in
communication with the creative director. They are the ones who will be
able to translate your brief into the most compelling, eye-catching
animated infographic possible.
Trust Your Feeling: After corresponding with an agency a few times, ask yourself how those interactions have been.
Do they seem passionate about your project?
Are they responsive and helpful?
Do they seem to be grasping your message?
Be
Open: As long as you’re open to professional opinion and are realistic
with your budget and schedule, you’ve everything you need to form an
amazingly productive and long-lasting collaboration.

University of Sussex proves it with this 3-minute clip about post-Brexit
Britain.
The clean, sleek animation uses block
colours and smooth transitions to effectively distinguish between
Britain’s various imports and exports as well as where they come and go
around the world.
Evolution of Insight – Animated Infographic
Evolution of Insight
This
interactive animated infographic was made by cloud-based customer
intelligence platform Vision Critical. It is a visual history of the
evolution of insight beginning in the 1890s with Herman Hollerith
revolutionizing the census process and ending with ‘in-the-moment’
mobile data collection.
The animators did a
great job at representing the aesthetic changes throughout the previous
century. And allowing the audience to interact with the infographic adds
a whole new level of engagement. If they can choose where to focus
their attention, they are likely to stay with it for longer.
Cheetah: Nature’s Speed Machine – Animated Infographic
cheetah
Educational
content maker Animagraffs created this animated infographic all about
the world’s fastest land mammal. Using beautiful sketch-style animation,
it gives the viewer the essential facts about cheetahs while making
interesting comparisons, like to the speed of a Ferrari Enzo.
Infographics
are a great way to educate people because they weed out the unimportant
information and present what matters in a visually appealing way,
helping people retain what they’re learning.
The Seas of Plastic – Animated Infographic
The Seas of Plastic
This
detailed interactive infographic, titled The Seas of Plastic, allows
the viewer to control an animated 3-D graphic of the earth, depicting 30
years of accumulated floating debris in the world’s ocean.
Infographics
are a fantastic tool for modelling and tracking complex systems and
data inputs, even on a world scale. When trying to portray something of
such enormity, it’s a helpful and powerful way of getting vital messages
across.
Chronology of the Universe – Animated Infographic
This
3.5-minute animated infographic video takes on the very ambitious task
of summarising the 13.7 billion-year history of the universe, and all
without voiceover. Instead, it combines dramatic music with ethereal
graphics and concise text to represent all of the major development
stages.
Don’t be afraid to be ambitious with
your animated infographic. And, if the topic allows, utilise sound
design to engross the viewer in the world, or universe, you’re
revealing.
42 Butterflies of North America Animated Infographic
Butterflies
Science
blog Tabletop Whale created this animated infographic as a guide to 42
of the most unique species of butterfly in North America. It is more
visual than it is informative, but it still includes their common names,
scientific names, sizes and locations.
This is
one of the most referenced animated infographics I have come across
online. The reason for its popularity is its moving animation and the
quality of that animation. Having life-like, fluttering sketches of
butterflies instantly catches the attention of anyone with the even
remotest interest.
Global Air Traffic – Animated Infographic
This
fascinating animated video infographic was made by German creative
communication solutions agency Rightcolours. It visualises interesting
facts and trends about worldwide air travel, such as the biggest cause
of delays, and ranking the world’s busiest airports.
The
simple animation continuously pans on to the next fact or point making
it simple to follow. A great technique if you want to create an animated
infographic packed full of curiosities.
The History of Europe: Every Year
This
well-researched historical infographic maps European boarders and
populations every year from 400 BC up to 2017. Given just 12 minutes, I
cannot think of a more effective way of visualising Europe’s population
dynamics throughout the centuries than with this style of animated
infographic video.
With over 5 million views,
this clip is more proof that the to-the-point appeal of infographics
works. The more effort you put in, the more likely you are to be
rewarded.
The New New York Skyline – Animated Infographic
The New New York Skyline
Iconic
magazine National Geographic created this interactive animated
infographic to show how the New York skyline will change radically by
2021. With 47 new skyscrapers either built, under construction or
planned between 2004 and that year, the city is undergoing an
unprecedented transformation.
Interactive
infographics are not only an excellent way of envisaging future plans,
they also allow people to focus on the bits that interest them.
Hellmann’s – It’s Time for Real – Animated Infographic
Food
product brand Hellman’s created this in animated infographic for a
Canadian audience. It promotes buying food that has been produced within
the country by informing customers of their growing reliance on imports
as well as their declining exports.
What makes
this infographic stand out is its creative combination of 3-D animation
and stop-motion. Having the food portray each fact cleverly reinforces
what’s being said.
Think about how you could combine animation styles to attract attention to your infographic.
Landing Page Best Practices – Animated Infographic
Landing Page Best Practices
Email
design and HTML coding company Email Monks created this innovative
animated infographic all about optimising your landing page. By
scrolling down the screen, you are in control of a car driving down
‘Landing Page Road’, leading straight to ‘Business Success’.
Think
about clever ways you can take the viewer on a journey with your
animated infographic. Make them excited to stick around and find out
what’s going to come up next.
Vitamin Atlas: An Interactive Guide to Nutrition and the Human Body
Vitamin Atlas: An Interactive Guide to Nutrition and the Human Body
Global
news company GOOD created this in-depth interactive infographic as a
guide to vitamins and the various function they perform in the human
body. It provides information about every vitamin, like background on
how and where it was discovered, what it does in the body and in what
foods it can be found in.
If your business is
highly complex, use animated interactive infographics to help potential
customers better understand your product or service.
Social Networks – In Numbers
This
is a good example of a low-budget animated infographic made by a
student. It breaks down the worldwide users of Facebook, Twitter and
YouTube by numbers and in doing so makes some fascinating points.
What
sparks my interest in this video is the comparisons it makes. For
example, if Facebook, with its 955 million users, were a country, it
would be the third largest in the world behind India.
If
your viewers are anything like me, including curious comparisons that
convey things like scale in your infographics will do a lot to hold
their attention.
“If your viewers are anything

Adobe Illustrator vs Adobe Photoshop – Animated Infographic
This
animated infographic is an interesting example of how the format can be
used to compare two similar things and highlight their differences.
Here we see Adobe’s vector graphics editor Illustrator side by side with
Adobe’s raster graphics editor Photoshop.
Perhaps
a critique you often hear about one of your products is that it’s the
very same as another, but you know that this is a misunderstanding.
Animated infographics could be the perfect tool to dispel all confusion.
Economic Inequality is Fixable – Animated Infographic
Economic Inequality is Fixable
American
non-profit think-thank The Economic Policy Institute created this
animated interactive infographic to educate people about how economic
inequality was created and how it can therefore be fixed. It offers
visitors a chance to learn the facts around factors like trade, tax
fairness and labour standards as well as myths like the American dream
and trickle-down economics.
Infographics are a
powerful tool for simplifying issues that people might otherwise be
turned off of. Encouraging them to get involved and take action.
Save the Elephants – Animated Infographic
Environmental
organisation WildAid created this 3.5-minute animated infographic as an
urgent wake-up call to the plight of the world’s elephant populations.
It instantly grabs the viewer’s attention with the shocking fact that of
the original 350 elephant species, only 2 remain.
This
is a great example of an infographic video using kinetic topography (or
‘moving text’) to communicate its agenda. This inexpensive form of
animation is effective at reinforcing key messages.
An Analysis of The Beatles – Animated Infographic
An Analysis of The Beatles
This
brilliant interactive infographic image was created by analytics and
art blog Dueling Data. It breaks down the Beatles discography by band
member for the 7 years they were releasing music as a group.
It
provides music nerds with data like: who wrote most of their songs,
what most of their songs are about and which of them had the largest
vocabulary (not Ringo).
Never underestimate the attention purely interest-based infographics can attract to your cause.
7 Ways to Hack a Drought – Animated Infographic
7 Ways to Hack a Drought
Data
visualization company Column Five Media created this animated GIF
infographic to help Californians cope with the water restrictions the
drought-prone state has implemented. It visualises 7 easy ways of
reducing water consumption.
Why not add some
simple motion to your still infographic? The engagement benefits of
doing so are well worth the minimal effort required to do it.
#NoFoodWasted – Animated Infographic
NBCUniversal’s
sustainability initiative Green is Universal created this shocking
animated video infographic for Earth Week 2015. It highlights the
problem of food waste in America, and opening with the unbelievable stat
that 40% of all food in America is thrown away certainly got my
attention.
I like this video because it
encourages people to be more environmentally conscious by showing just
how much it would benefit them personally, rather than expecting
everyone to see the bigger picture.
Also, to boost awareness, think about putting your brand colour centre stage in your infographic.
2013 on Ustream – Animated Infographic
2013 on Ustream
Live
video streaming and video hosting company Ustream, now IBM Cloud Video,
decided to create this entire animated infographic website for maximum
exposure. The animation moves in relation to the scrollbar. As you move
down each page, the animations pop out to supplement stats.
Depending
on the nature of your business, presenting your vital statistics up
front and centre in a bright and bold fashion could be a perfect tactic
for boosting your conversions.
“Depending on

How Speakers Make Sound – Animated Infographic
How Speakers Make Sound
This
detailed, professional animated infographic turns realistic exploded
view sketches into GIF images in order to explain how speakers work. It
provides technical details about magnets, cones, suspension and sound
waves.
This style of animated infographic is
perfect for explaining highly complicated and technical products. If you
are targeting professionals or people who are knowledgeable about your
industry, a great product board will let them know exactly why they
should choose to buy from you.
Omega Pharma – Animated Infographic
Belgian-based
pharmaceutical company Omega Pharma created this animated video
infographic to build awareness of their growing importance in the
industry.
This is a great example of a
multifunctional corporate marketing infographic. It could just as easy
be classed as a brand advert or even an explainer video. Sometimes
infographics are the most effective way of getting your brand messages
across.
Free Business Directory
Children of the Recession – Animated Infographic
Non-profit
organisation UNICEF created this poignant animated video infographic to
highlights the impact the economic crisis is having on child well-being
in rich countries. It uses kinetic topography, emotive music and graphs
to present a worrying trend in European child poverty.
One
thing I especially like about this video is its character design. It
shows the range of children effected and sends a powerful message by
keeping their faces featureless.
Conclusion
I
hope this post has given you a better understanding of animated
infographics and maybe even got you thinking about making your own.
While watching these 25 examples, are there any that relate to your infographic needs?

5) Buddha
Buddha
The
term Buddha means the “awakened one” and represents the founder of
Buddhism. A real person, the Buddha was a former prince who gave up a
lavish lifestyle to find the root of human suffering and discover the
true meaning of life. His story inspires us to remember that as a normal
person who liberated himself from suffering, we can do the same. It is
recommended to take a moment at the beginning of a meditation to imagine
yourself as Buddha with all of his qualities – open, enlightened and
compassionate.
