The Satipatthana Sutta (The Establishing of Mindfulness Discourse) gives detailed instructions in the first two functions of the Buddhist path. It starts with the basic formula for establishing mindfulness, describing four frames of reference for anchoring mindfulness in the present moment. Then it asks and answers questions that focus solely on the beginning part of the formula: how to remain focused on each frame in and of itself.
