Banyen's Description: 

Transformation and Healing presents one of the Buddha’s most fundamental teachings and the foundation of all mindfulness practice. The Sutra on the Four Establishments of Mindfulness has been studied, practiced, and handed down with special care from generation to generation for 2,500 years. This sutra teaches us how to deal with anger and jealousy, to nurture the best qualities in our children, spouses, and friends, and to greet death with compassion and equanimity.

The four “establishments” are mindfulness of body, feelings, mental formations, and perception itself.

We see that the field of objects is very vast. But the division into four establishments is a convenient tool to help us learn how to practice mindfulness.

If you would like to study meditation, this Sutra on the Four Establishments of Mindfulness is part of your foundation. This is one of the sutras you keep under your pillow, always with you.

Thich Nhat Hanh presents the Buddha’s teachings on mindfulness—the most basic meditation practice—and offers concrete suggestions for the practice. His commentary is organized into twenty exercises that guide readers through the fundamentals of Buddhist practice and offer insights into mindfulness in daily life.

If you were to possess only one book on how to fare through this human existence with joy and self-knowledge, it should be this one.” —Karuna Journal
