FOUR FOUNDATIONS OF MINDFULNESS, THE US $0.00

An Exposition of the Summary

by SAYADAW U SILANANDA

ISBN 983-9439-59-6
IJ060/02
Size: 8” X 8”
Pages: 84

This work as its sub-title suggest is an exposition of the summary of the Mahasatipatthana Sutta (The Great Discourse On the of Mindfulness). It is transcribed from a talk given by Sayadaw U Silananda at the Buddha Sasana Yeiktha, Seven Bridge, Ontario, Canada.

The summary here refers to the passage in this discourse which with the Buddha laying claim to the efficacy of Satipatthana as the only way for obtaining seven benefits — beginning with the purification of beings and among which is the realization of Nibbana — the acme of the Buddhist path of mental culture. The Buddha then goes on to give a summary of the method for the establishing of mindfulness (Satipatthana) with reference to body, feeling, consciousness and dhamma. These four — collectively called the four foundation of mindfulness are the four objective domains for contemplation with mindfulness in Satipatthana meditation practice. In the summary the Buddha listed out the mental factors that the meditator must bring to bear in his work of meditation. He also stated very concisely how Satipatthana meditation is to be carried out. Due to its conciseness the meaning of this passage may not be at once clear or apparent. An exposition of its meaning is therefore helpful to uncover its meaning.

Drawing from his vast knowledge of the Pali canonical and commentarial texts as well as his years of experience teaching Satipatthana meditation, Sayadaw U Silananda gives us — in a very simple language — lucid explanation of the meaning of each and every word in the summary passage as well as its significance and implication in the actual work of Satipatthana meditation. As he said it is very important for a Satipatthana meditator to understand this passage correctly and clearly. Understanding even this much they will have a firm understanding of the practice and how to carry it out.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The Venerable Sayadaw U Silananda was selected by the late Most Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma to carry out the honourable task of spreading the Dhamma in the West, more than 30 years ago.

Today, the Venerable Sayadaw is the Abbot of Dhammananda Vihara in California and the Spiritual Director of the Theravada Buddhist Society of America, Dhammachakka Meditation Center in Berkeley, the Tathagata Meditation Center of San Jose, the Society for Advancement of Buddhism in Ft. Myers (Florida) and the Bodhi Tree Dhamma Center in Largo (Florida). In Mynmar, the Venerable is also one of three spiritual directors (Ovadacariya Sayadaws) of the Mahasi Meditation Center in Yangon.

Born to a devout Buddhist family in Mandalay on 16 December, 1927, the Venerable received his early education at Kelly High School, an American Baptist Mission School for boys. In 1943, at the age of 16, he ordained as a novice monk and began formal religious training with his preceptor and other renowned monks. Full bhikkhu ordination followed in 1947.

The Venerable holds two Dhammacariya (Master of Dhamma) degrees and has taught at the Athithokdayone Pali University. He was an External Examiner at the Department of Oriental Studies, University of Art and Sciences in Mandalay, Myanmar.

The Venerable was the Chief Compiler of the Tipitaka Pali-Burmese Dictionary and was one of the distinguished editors of the Pali Canon and associated Commentaries at the Sixth Buddhist Council held in Rangoon (Yangon) from 1954 to 1956. He is the author of seven Burmese Buddhist books and nine in English. Three of his English books had been translated into Chinese.

Well-regarded as a compassionate, knowledgeable and wise teacher, the Venerable Sayadaw teaches Vipassana meditation, Abhidhamma and other aspects of Theravadian Buddhism in English, Burmese, Pali and Sanskrit. He has led meditation retreats throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and Europe.
