In Maha-satipatthana Sutta: Great Discourse on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness Buddha very clearly states where craving arises and is abandoned.
The Figure 3 shows the possible points of action that can be applied to this model (as shown in other posts). The Foundations of Mindfulness: (Satipatthana Sutta), the contemplation of the body (kayanupassana), feeling (vedananupassana), mind (cittanupassana), and mental objects (dhammanupassana) which is shown in yellow bubbles in the flow chart (Figure 2), is the training that will enable us to see things clearly. With wise attention (Yoniso manasikara), we can now contemplate onThe Three Characteristics (ti-lakkha.na), Impermanence (Anicca),Suffering or Unsatisfactoriness (dukkha) and Not-self or Insubstantiality (anattaa) and this is the is final common pathway of contemplation of insight. The craving is completely destroyed by by insight or vipassana meditation.
Craving can be seen more clearly at the points of the sensory objects, contacts, the five aggregates. This is why in insight meditation we work on the initial part of the model to get rid of craving. Wise attention is very important here. As the craving gets into stages of applied and sustained thoughts and especially mental/conceptual proliferation (about the past present and the future) it will be hard to recognize it and deal with it (see Figure 1).
Form is used in the sutta instead of object in the model
Intellect is used in the sutta instead of the mind in the model
Ideas are used in the sutta instead of mental objects model
* Thought directed:This is applied and sustained thought according to the model.
**Evaluation This is mental proliferation (past, present and the future) according to the model.
