Course objectives:

  • Summarize the fourth foundation of mindfulness: mindfulness of dhamma, or the categories of our experiences, such as the six sense spheres, the seven factors of awakening, and The Four Noble Truths.
  • Discuss the process by which suffering arises in our minds and lives—and the possibilities for each of us to experience freedom here and now.
  • Discuss the steps of the Noble Eight-Fold Path as outlined by the Buddha.
  • Summarize the teachings from the Satipatthana Sutta on the mindfulness of dhamma, as taught by the Buddha, illuminated by Joseph Goldstein through poetry, practical exercises, teaching stories, and precise guidance for practice leading to liberation.

The Final Volume in Joseph Goldstein’s Satipatthana Sutta Series

In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four satipatthanas) are “the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for acquiring the true method, for the realization of Nibbana.” Within the quintessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha’s seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

On Abiding in Mindfulness Volume 3: On Dhamma, esteemed teacher and author Joseph Goldstein presents the culmination of his landmark series with a 16-CD audio curriculum that reveals the deeper insights of this vital sutta—and how it serves to pragmatically inform and guide your own daily practice.

The Fourth Foundation of Mindfulness and the “Categories of Phenomena”

The fourth foundation of mindfulness instructs us in mindfulness of dhamma, or the “categories of phenomena” that we experience. Having looked at the first two of these traditional categories (the hindrances and the aggregates) in Abiding in Mindfulness Volume 2, Goldstein now takes us into the three remaining categories known as the six sense-spheres, the seven factors of awakening, and the Four Noble Truths.

In nearly 18 hours of in-depth teaching, he guides us in discovering with exactitude and precision the process by which suffering arises in our minds and lives—and the possibilities for each of us to experience freedom here and now.

After four decades studying and practicing the Sattipatthana Sutta, Joseph Goldstein concludes that the seeds of all the Buddha’s teachings are contained with this revered text. Abiding in Mindfulness Volume 3 brings us an unprecedented audio series for anyone walking the Buddha’s path to happiness and fulfillment. Includes study guide with glossary.

This is an excellent teaching on the Satipatthana Sutta, and hear something new with each listen. Had recently purchased the book by Analayo, "Satipatthana, The Direct Path To Realization", which is a companion study for these teachings. Many thanks to Joseph for his wise words.

Beautiful conclusion to Mr. Goldstein's three part series on the Satipatthana Sutta. This trilogy is the standard by which future works will be judged. Thanks to Ven. Analayo for his masterful interpretation of the sutta, to Mr. Goldstein for his making it accessible, clear and relavant, and to you Sounds True for producing this masterpiece.
