Heart of Buddhist Meditation: satipatthana - the Buddha's way of mindfulness, with an anthology of relevant texts translated from the Pali and Sanskrit

by Nyanaponika Thera

Description
THE HEART OF BUDDHIST MEDITATION is a work of unique importance in the literature about meditation. It is written with great depth, extraordinary knowledge, deep humanity, and in a style that is simple and direct… I do not know of any book which could be compared to this work as a guide to meditation. Although written from the Buddhist thinking, it is of equal value to the non-Buddhist reader. I have learned much from this book personally…others to whom I have recommended it say that it was of decisive importance for their lives. I highly recommend it to anyone who is seriously concerned with the problems of meditation and self-development.
—Dr Erich Fromm
