Satipatthana Sutta Discourses
The Satipatthana Sutta is the Buddha's single most important discourse describing the practice of meditation. Here for the first time is the condensed version of the daily evening discourse given by the author to his students on a seven day retreat. This text can serve as a review after taking a course or for scholars as a further study of the sutta. The book is also a great tool to help meditators practice and as S.N. Goenka said, "Liberation can only be gained by practice, never by mere discussion." Included is a list of abbreviations, a glossary, and an English translation of Pali passages.
