Publisher's Summary

In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four sadhipatthanas) are " the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disapperance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the rea;ization of Nibbahna." Within the quinitessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

Wonderful!

This recording can easily stand alone without Vol. 1 and 2 of the three part set. I just picked up at the start of Vol. 3 and it was great. I didn't feel that I had missed anything that prohibited my understanding of the material presented. There wasn't the feeling that I'd come late to "class" and I was playing catch-up. I may go back in future and get Vol.1 and 2, but for now this is more than enough to absorb. As to the recording-- it is beautifully done and makes for a powerful listening experience. Highly recommended.

Simply beautiful

Here's an idea:
Get this book (there is only one by Joseph Goldstein here; but what a gem!)
and a couple of Jack Kornfields' (they are all excellent)
and a couple of Pema Chodrins' (this is key, mind won't wake without heart)
Maybe throw in Ram Das or Adyashanti
(Alan Watts minces no words either)
Take a couple of weeks off
Go somewhere quiet and full of nature
Listen, sit, walk, transform.
