Description

Meditation Manual: Based on the Buddha's Satipatthana Sutta Satipaṭṭhānasuttaṃ is the basis of insight meditation practice in most traditions of Buddhism. Numerous books have been written expounding the methodology of meditation based on this discourse, the latest being the book by Ven. Analayo.

In these books the meditation instructions are embedded in scholarly exposition of the discourse and therefore very sparsely dispersed in the text.Here an attempt has been made to compile these instructions, mostly from the book by Ven. Analayo, along with the original text in Pali and its English translation. A few alterations have been done based on my own meditation practice and the advice given by other contemporary meditation teachers like Ajahn Sumedho, Rodney Smith,Ajahn Brahm, Joseph Goldstein, Ven. Vimalramsi and others.

I hope the compilation would be helpful in exposing the meditators to the nuances of various traditions and benefit from them.
