Mahasatipatthana sutta, the Great Discourse on establishing awareness, is one of the most important discourses expounded by the Buddha in the town called Kammasadhamma in Kuru kingdom. In this sutta, the Buddha presented a practical method for developing self-knowledge by means of kāyānupassanā (constant observation of the body), vedanānupassanā (constant observation of sensations), cittānupassanā (constant observation of the mind), and dhammānupassanā (constant observation of the contents of the mind).
