Shelves: vipassana
Students of Vipassana, after sitting three 10-day courses and serving one 1-day course and practicing Vipassana meditation daily can register to sit an 8-day course called Satipatthana Sutta. I sat my first Sati course in July 2012 having no idea really what the course entailed or what the evening discourses would be like as compared to the 10-day Vipassana courses I had sat previously.

At the Sati course we were given a book with the Satipatthana discourse written in full in both Pali and

Probably the only book you'll really need for serious Vipassana practice.

Excellent commentary on the Satipatthana Sutta. Note that the original text is not included, only the discourses, which are essentially a transcript of one of Goenkaji's classes on the Sutta. I believe this book will be of most value to those who have attended one of the ten day Vipassana Meditation courses.

This is mainly intended as a companion book for those taking the Satipatthana course as taught by S.N. Goenka. It's not an easy read, due to numerous and long quotes in Pali. But it does give a clear explanation of the practice described in the sutta, as near as I can tell. For meditators with experience with Goenka's technique, this seems like a great reference for its most advanced aspects.

Very concise interpretation, right to the point. If you want to learn meditation, try Goenkaji's 10-day vipassana course. Give yourself a chance to learn the essance of genuine happiness.
