Looking for a pdf of "Satipatthana" book by Ven Analayo

Postby James the Giant » Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:18 am

Does anyone know if this book is available as a pdf or ebook?
I've done a search but only have a tiny phone to access the internet on, so my search was pretty basic.
Thanks for the help!

EDIT: Found! Thankyou to SamKR for the link. It is at http://www.budaedu.org/ebooks/6-EN.php

Hi James
Not to my knowledge.
Its actually worth purchasing and I recommend you do so if you have the means.
kind regards

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Searched for it, but it is only available in a paid-for form.

Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Thank you for searching for me. I went to the library and used their internet and had a good search too, but it seems there's no electronic edition available yet.

I'm happy to pay full price, but I just don't want another paper book to lug around on my travels.

It doesn't weigh much James and it is well worth it.

Out of my beloved library of Dhamma books, If I could only take one with me, it just might be this one.

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

I've now had four recommendations for this book, including one from the abbot of the monastery. .. I saw him walking around with it the other day.
So I've ordered a copy. Cheers for the recommendation.

Thanks James for starting this thread. I wasn't aware of this book before it :anjali:

Sorry for dredging up an old thread, but recently here on DhammaWheel I saw someone link to a site where Ven Anālayo's book "Satipaṭṭhāna: the direct path to realization" was now available free and legally as a PDF or epub or something.
And now I can't find that post. I think the post was created in the past few months, and I remember BlackBird replied how excellent it was to have it available.
Hmm, I've done a good search using google's internal site-search like this
site:www.dhammawheel.com search:satipattana but I couldn't find it.

Can anyone recall what it was? I'd like to have it on my kindle before I go away.
Many thanks again.
