The tag Vipassana identifies products that are directly related to this
tradition and differentiates them from other Theravada resources
available on our site. While the main emphasis in Vipassana meditation
as taught by S.N. Goenka is on actual practice, this product may provide
inspiration and guidance to a Vipassana meditator.
We also carry titles from the Theravada tradition, as we feel that by exploring the wider world of the Theravada texts, which include the Buddha’s discourses, commentaries, and scholarly articles and treatises, meditators have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Dhamma and thereby enrich their meditation practice. This kind of intellectual exploration also helps a meditator to gain an understanding of the evolution and historical context of their meditation tradition. This understanding in turn deepens their practice and understanding of the Dhamma.x

Satipatthana Sutta Discourses (2nd Edition) is a condensed version of S.N. Goenka's discourses from an eight-day course on the Mahasatipatthana Sutta. Goenkaji reads and interprets the sutta in his discourses, giving life and inspiring relevance to the primary text given by the Buddha about Vipassana meditation practice. The 2nd edition offers a new "Introduction" about Goenkaji's life.
This book is a companion volume to Mahasatipatthana Sutta, which contains the entire text of the sutta in the original Pali language spoken by the Buddha and a complete translation in English.
