A Treatise on Buddhist Satipaṭṭhāna Meditation by The Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw of Burma
To present to the reading public a treatise on Buddhist meditation needs no word of apology today. In wide circles of the West, Buddhist meditation is no longer regarded as a matter of purely academic or
exotic interest. Under the stress and complexity of modern life the need for mental and spiritual regeneration is now widely felt, and in the field of the mind’s methodical development the value of
Buddhist meditation has been recognized and tested by many.
It is, in particular, the Buddha’s Way of Mindfulness (satipaṭṭhāna) that has been found invaluable because it is adaptable to, and beneficial in, widely different conditions of life. The present treatise
is based on this method of cultivating mindfulness and awareness, which ultimately aims at the mind’s final liberation from greed, hatred, and delusion.
