Editorial Reviews

"The Maha Satipatthana Sutta, the Great Discourse on the Foundations of Mindfulness, is one of the key teachings of the Buddha, and Venerable U Silananda has written one of its best and most illuminating commentaries."

"Venerable U Silananda, being a scholar and a yogi, is able to harmonize doctrine and practice so that there are no gaps between the two realms."
Kate Wheeler
"Lucid, soothing, and practical."
