1. This is the sixth post in this series. It is important to follow the series from the beginning. All posts are at “Living Dhamma.”
- Here I want to show that what we have been discussing in this section is exactly what is recommended at the beginning of the Mahā Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta.
- Here we will discuss the key verse, “ātāpī sampajānō, satimā vineyya lōke abhijjhā dōmanassam, “ that appears in the sutta numerous times. It is also the basis of the Ānāpāanasati bhāvanā.
2. Many people believe that the Sutta is a kammaṭṭhāna that one recites or “meditates on.” But it is much more than a kammaṭṭhāna. I will provide more evidence in future posts, but here is the audio on the basics of the Mahā Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta (you may need to control the volume on your computer):Download
3. Links relevant to the dēsanā:
