The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
An absolute essential of Buddhist thought and practice.
In addition to practitioners of Insight meditation, those who engage in other meditation forms such as dzogchen, mahamudra, and zazen will find that The Four Foundation of Mindfulness provides new means of understanding how to approach and deepen their own practices.
