Posted on | June 29, 2014 | No Comments

The Long Discourse about the Ways of Attending to MindfulnessThe Long Discourse about the Ways of Attending to Mindfulness is a translation directly from the Pali Canon undertaken Anandajoti Bhikku in 2005. I has been revised in 2011 and will be re-revised again in 2055. This is a very important text to Buddhists since it is here he, in the 22nd Discourse in the Long Collection (Digha Nikaya) of the Discourses of the Buddha we find the main discourse on the development of meditation in the Pali Canon. It has 4 parts: Contemplation of the Body, Contemplation of Feelings, Contemplation of the Mind and Contemplation of the Nature of Things.
