Maha-Satipatthana Sutta: based upon DN 22 PTS: D ii 290 Print
Written by David Holmes (Anagarika Tevijjo)   


The word "satipatthana" is the name for an approach to meditation aimed at establishing sati, or mindfulness.

The term ‘sati’ is related to the verb sarati, to remember or to keep in mind.

It is sometimes translated as non-reactive awareness, free from agendas, simply present with whatever arises, but the formula for satipatthana doesn't support that translation.
