Satipatthana or the practice of mindfulness was recommended by the Buddha for all who seek to grow spiritually and eventually attain the realization of enlightenment. The method taught here is the foundation of all Buddhist meditation practice. This form of meditation may be practised with benefit by all,
Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, because its aim is simply to expand the practiser`s consciousness and bring him face to face with his mind.
According to the instructions of Satipatthana Sutta, the discourse of the Buddha, dealing with the practice of mindfulness, one should be mindful of the activities of walking, standing, sitting, and lying down respectively. One should also be mindful of other bodily activities as each of them occurs.
