Sangharakshita's own commentary on this key Buddhist text on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness puts the emphasis on a sense of purpose and a questioning attitude - what is mindfulness?
The Satipatthana Sutta is an important Theravada Buddhist teaching dealing with awareness and mindfulness of breathing meditation practice. In this book Sangharakshita guides us towards a deeper understanding of what it is to be truly aware. His commentary on this sutta shows that mindfulness - the defining quality of Buddhist practice - is a single, profoundly spiritual faculty. It is an active, intelligent awareness that can reveal the deeper harmony and higher truth of things.
In mindfulness we hold the secret of our own happiness. By learning to live mindfully, we can begin to realize the truth that what each of us will become depends to a very great extent on how fully, how unobstructively, we can live this present moment.
