Meditation and Readings Discussion - What is Sati (mindfulness)?

We will be exploring sati (mindfulness) is the book we will be reading...let's read all of Part One.

Thanissaro is critical of the way sati is translated or used as 'bare attention'. This use goes back to Nyanaponika Thera using it in his books The Heart of Buddhist Meditation and The Power of Mindfulness.

He was influenced by Mahasi Sayadaw's view of Vipassana Meditation...which was influenced by the Visudhimagga.

Here is a article on sati by Ven. Bodhi. He talks a bit about his teachers use of 'bare attention'.
