Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds
I’ve been reading the Sattipathana Sutta on buddhanet.net, the Buddha’s own teaching on ‘mindfulness.’ Big fancy title for what are really a set of very short, simple instructions. This Sutta is said to be the most important of the Buddha’s teachings. I finally had enough book learnin’ that I can go to the source and appreciate it’s simplicity. These teachings all written in repetitive formulas that you can memorize and recite to yourself, like a mantra.
