The series of video clips are systematically linked at satipatthanasbs.com. As the total duration is about 20 hours, there are altogether 70 video files.
Structure of Workshop
The format consists of group chanting in Pāli, translation into English, explanation and word analysis by Āyasmā Aggacitta, discussion and presentation by the participants, followed by Āyasmā Aggacitta’s explanation. Sutta study is made practical through guided meditation exercises wherever and whenever applicable. Among other revelations, this workshop clarifies the meaning of samādhi, the distinction between samatha and vipassanā, and the difference between jhāna in the suttas and in the Visuddhimagga.
