Lions Roar : March 2008
I n the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four satipat.t . ha - nas) are “the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for acquiring the true method, for the realization of Nibbana.” Within the quintessential discourse called the Satipat.t . ha - na Sutta, we find the Buddha’s seminal teachings on the practice of meditation. On Abiding in Mindfulness, Volumes 1 and 2, esteemed teacher and Insight Meditation Society cofounder Joseph Goldstein presents a 16-CD audio curriculum to reveal the deeper insights of this vital sutta—and how it serves to inform and guide your own daily practice. Volume One: Goldstein introduces you to the first satipat.t . ha - na, mindfulness of the body. Here, you will learn the cornerstone techniques for successful meditation practice, as taught by the Buddha himself. Volume Two: A comprehensive discourse on the second foundation, mindfulness of feelings. Listeners explore the qualities of “pleasantness, unpleasantness, or neutrality” that arise in every moment of experience. According to the sutta, it is close attention to each of these qualities that unlocks our deepest patterns of conditioning—and removes our greatest obstacles to liberation. Volume Two also includes instruction on the third and fourth foundations: Mindfulness of Mind and Mindfulness of Dhammas (or “categories of phenomena”). Goldstein elucidates the pragmatic discernment of skillful and wholesome mind states and their counterparts, how to work with hindrances and aggregates, and much more. Note: the forthcoming Abiding in Mindfulness, Volume 3, will contain remaining talks on the fourth foundation. All author’s proceeds from these three programs will be donated to the Insight Meditation Society’s Forest Refuge retreat center.
