Publisher's Summary

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. Containing 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.

A comprehensive book on meditation

I started meditation with Eric Harrison's two CD set: “How to Meditate. Part 1: The Basic Kit”. As I gradually savored the benefit of meditation under Eric's calm voice, I found out this comprehensive book from Eric again, which is written with his over 40-year teaching experience of mindfulness for over 30,000 students. I highly recommend this book (and his meditation CD as well). His book is written in an informative way on meditation, but is also easy to understand with crystal clear language.
