Description

The Satipatthana Sutta is a key teaching offered by the Buddha, covering the four primary ways to establish mindfulness – in the body, feeling tone of experience, moods and psychological process. It is the discourse that is the foundation of insight meditation teaching and contemporary mindfulness programmes. It is a profound teaching that embraces every aspect of our lives, leading to profound inner peace and freedom.
