Maha Satipatthana Sutta

A major sutta pertaining to meditation, The Maha Satipatthana Sutta or The Great Discourse on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness is one of the very important sutta given by the Buddha, elucidated a very systematic approach in meditation practice.

It holds a very esteem in Theravada Buddhist’s teaching and is found in Digha Nikaya, The Collection of Long Discourses of the Buddha, Sutta 22.

And if one would sincerely and seriously put into practice will lead one to the attainment of Nibbana.
