This sutta is the primary discourse in which the Buddha describes the practice of meditation in detail. This translation of the Mahāsatipaṭṭhāna Sutta has Roman-script Pāli with an English translation on facing pages as well as an introductory article and detailed footnotes explaining Pali terms and phrases. This highly significant text will be of interest to any serious student of meditation or of the Buddha’s teaching.
This book is intended for use in the Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta meditation courses for Old Students of Vipassana, as taught by S.N. Goenka. Using this text, Mr. Goenka gives evening discourses explaining why Vipassana is taught the way it is.
The Satipatthana Sutta Discourses book is a summary of those discourses and serves as a nice companion to the Mahāsatipaṭṭhāna Sutta.
