A brilliant, new, secular explanation of the Buddhas teachings on mindfulness.

The Satipatthana Sutta the 2,500-year-old teachings of the Buddha himself is the original DIY manual on how to meditate and be mindful. Just a few pages long, with 13 recommended practices, it provides the authority for the worldwide practice of mindfulness. However, this influential text has been neglected of laten not least because the common translation, in Victorian English, is virtually indecipherable. So, modern mindfulness students focused instead on the Zen practice of just sitting risk missing the benefits of the Buddhas more sophisticated approach.

In 1975, Eric Harrison retranslated the Satipatthana Sutta and made it the basis of his teaching career. Now, with his new translation and commentary informed by a lifelong consideration of the Buddhas original teachings he makes mindfulness more accessible than ever, particularly to those coming to it not by way of Buddhism or prior meditation practice.
