About the author
Bhikkhu Analayo was ordained as a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka, where he completed his PhD. His thesis was subsequently published as Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Realization. He is a leading scholar in research on early Buddhism, having written more than 200 academic publications, and is a professor of Buddhist Studies and Sri Lanka International Buddhist Academy and is an associate professor at the Center for Buddhist Studies, University of Hamburg.
For those who approach Buddhism as a system of mental development, this book is a reliable and accessible guide to understanding the significance of themes from the Pali discourses. Themes include grasping, right view, craving, passion, contemplation of feeling, happiness, and liberation. A rare combination of scholarly rigor and extensive meditation experience from the author provides veracity to these studies and explorations.
