    Discover the wisdom of the Buddha's original teachings on mindfulness. Usually translated as The Foundations of Mindfulness, the Satipatthana Sutta--taken from 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 late--not least because the common translation, in Victorian English, is virtually indecipherable. So, many modern mindfulness students--focused instead on the Zen practice of "just sitting"--risk missing the benefits of the Buddha's more sophisticated approach. Eric Harrison first translated the Satipatthana Sutta in 1975 and made it the basis of his decades-long teaching career. Now, with a new translation and commentary informed by a lifelong consideration of the Buddha's original teachings, Harrison makes mindfulness more accessible than ever--to psychologists, teachers, and everyone with a serious interest in the practice looking for deeply informed, sparklingly clear insights and guidance.
