Posted on | August 19, 2012 | No Comments

Maha Satipatthana SuttaMaha Satipatthana Sutta has been translated into The Greater Discourse on Steadfast Mindfulness or The Great Discourse on the Establishing Awareness. It is acknowledged as the most important Sutta that the Buddha taught in the Burmese Theravada Buddhism and it provides a means for practicing mindfulness in a variety of contexts. Famously, the Buddha declares at the beginning of this discourse:

“This is the direct way for the purification of beings, for the overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, for the extinguishing of suffering and grief, for walking on the path of truth, for the realization of nibbāna.”

The meditation techniques identified in this sutta can be practiced individually. Download Maha Satipatthana Sutta here (71 pages/748KB):
