An Essential Addition to Mindfulness Literature

Who among us does not want to discern right from wrong and useful from useless in any situation?

Thirty years ago—long before the modern mindfulness movement—Eric Harrison began teaching meditation as a secular, science-based therapy. Paradoxically, he rooted his practice in the Buddha’s original teaching: the Satipatthana Sutta.

In 13 steps the Sutta sets forth the Buddha’s mind-training guidelines, to prepare us to pay supremely close attention, practice good judgment, and find tranquility and insight. Now—informed by a lifetime spent teaching tens of thousands to meditate—Harrison offers both a new translation of the Sutta (the first in modern English) and lucid guidance on how to apply its wisdom at every moment, in every situation, no matter how confusing or ambiguous.
