The Satipatthana Sutta is used as the basis for Mindfulness and a support to Vipassana Practice. But Bhante Vimalaramsi has found after practicing it for many years that the current defintion of Mindfulness and the Vipassana method does not match the suttas, the earliest Buddhist teachings.
This is a comment from "Chela" at NewBuddhist.com/discussion
"This is actually something I did find that made me think, in particular, about Vipassana:
'It was Bhante Vimalaramsi who helped me escape the person I had become via "vipassana". Numerous 10 day courses, although initially enticing had turned me into an unthinking, hard-hearted individual who was gradually losing all sense of the joy and wonder of the Dhamma - which is what attracted me to it in the first place. There is more between heaven & earth than bare attention & observing sensations, and Bhante Vimalaramsi is one of the few monks who actually teach what that is. If we want to hang around waiting for the "perfect" monk as a teacher, we might have a long wait. All I know is that Bhante's teachings resonate with the suttas, introduce clear guidelines for practice which find verification in the suttas, and most importantly they work.'
