in accordance with this Mahasatipatthana Sutta so that
you can see why it is acknowledged as the most important Sutta
that the Buddha taught.
Try to practise
all the different sections from time to time as they are all useful,
but in the beginning start with something simple such as being
mindful while walking (see Iriyapatha Pabba), or the mindfulness
of in and out breathing (see Anapana Pabba). Then as you practise
these you will be able to practise the other sections contained
within this Sutta and you will find that all the four satipatthanas
can be practised concurrently.
A sutta should
be read again and again as you will tend to forget its message.
The message here in this Sutta is that you should be mindful of
whatever is occurring in the body and mind, whether it be good
or bad, and thus you will become aware that all conditioned phenomena
are impermanent, unsatisfactory and not-self.
Pali text of this Sutta can be found in Mahavagga of the Digha
