In his introduction to the Sutta, Thanissaro Bhikkhu (2011) suggests that, rather than offering four different areas of meditation practice, the Satipatthana Sutta presents, in fact, one practice, and, in its four sections, shows how the practitioner might achieve increasing levels of depth within their practice. In other words, in mindfulness practice, according to the Satipatthana, here and now awareness of the body is the ﬁrst step, and as practice deepens, the whole Buddhist understanding of the nature of experience is revealed through the lens of that practice.
