Satipatthana Suttanta Resources
This section is an effort to make convenient in one spot a good selection of materials on the study of Satipatthana technique. In the end, however, we would be well advised to remember that the Buddha stated that if he were to be questioned by four knowledgable persons who asked about the Four Satipatthana in turn without breaks except for answering the calls of nature, eating and sleeping, he could continue to expound on the subject for an aeon and not be finished.
The Satipatthana technique is one of the easier ones to use in seeing how the Dhamma is made up of units which are themselves all-encompassing - limitless in scope and expandability. The Satipatthana Sutta contains the Eightfold path which begins with Samma Ditthi which contains the Eightfold Path which Contains Samma Sati which is expanded as the Satipatthana technique, and so forth. i.e., a complete list of resources for the study of the Satipatthana technique would include the whole of the Sutta collection.
