Summary
The Satipatthana Sutta-- taken from the 2,500-year-old teachings of the Buddha himself-- is the original manual on how to meditate and be mindful. One of its recommended practices is the worldwide practice of mindfulness. Harrison has made the Sutta the basis of his teaching career. Now, with a new translation and commentary, he makes mindfulness more accessible than ever
