The four frames of reference
« on: March 11, 2010, 05:11:27 pm »
I have learned about the four frames of reference, but I find myself confused about the meanings of the words and the ways they are intended.  Can anyone provide a recommendation for what they feel is an excellent, thorough, and practical discourse on the subject?

Greetings,

It seems you have already encountered the Satipatthana Sutta itself, in which case I would recommend purchasing Analayo's "Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Realization"

Here's a review...

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

This sutta is a very practical description of how to be be mindful and develop insight, and and I'd recommend to Buddhists from all traditions.

Just finished it myself. Most useful reference/ manual I have read. I will have to reread a few more times.
