Material from additional suttas will be use to amplify the teachings of the Mahasatipatthana Sutta. In addition to carefully reading Digha Nikaya 22, students should also read (before the course begins) Digha Nikaya 2, the Sama˝˝aphala Sutta, for a beautiful and interesting explanation of the gradual training; Majjhima Nikaya 118, the Anapanasati Sutta, for a full explanation of the practice of Mindfulness of Breathing plus a detailed discussion of the Seven Factors of Enlightenment; and Majjhima Nikaya 119, the Kayagata-sati Sutta, to see the connections of mindfulness of the body, the Jhanas and the gradual training.
This course is limited to students who have completed at least 2 one-week or longer silent retreats.
