Satipatthana Meditation - The Direct Path to Realisation

According to the Buddha, wisdom arises in dependence upon direct seeing that the five aggregates and the six sense bases are impermanent, bound up with suffering and devoid of a substantial self. On this day we will seek to observe these truths in our own experience
