A Treatise on Insight Meditation
An in-depth study of the first seven insights, which form a distinct and self-sufficient system known as "the seven contemplations" (satta anupassana), this book is theoretically rigorous yet pragmatic and precise. The book weaves together extensive material from the Buddha's discourses and the commentaries with concrete guidelines to mental training. By giving us a vivid picture of how these seven contemplations are to be applied in the actual course of meditation practice, this work serves to fill a major gap in our understanding of Buddhist insight meditation.
