    In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four sadhipatthanas) are " the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disapperance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the rea;ization of Nibbahna." Within the quinitessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

    Would you listen to Abiding in Mindfulness, Vol. 3 again? Why?

    I have listened to this audiobook at least a few dozen times. It is immeasurably and indescribably essential for one's spiritual development.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There's no beating around the bush. Following these instructions, reflecting intimately on what is said, and operationally integrating them into one's life will inevitably lead to enlightenment. Period.


    What about Joseph Golstien’s performance did you like?

    He comments directly on the Buddha's words and offers real, 21st century insight into what was meant and how one can apply it to one's path.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Although everyone's story is different and I am by no means saying this will apply to you, after four months of intensive studying, reflecting and meditating (all supported and inspired by this very book), the shackles of delusion, clinging and aversion were irreversibly destroyed. Dukkha came to an end.

    Done was what had to be done.


    Any additional comments?

    May all beings who come across this review attain the deathless, put an end to craving and experience the stillness of awakening.
