The Four Foundations of Mindfulness provide the basic meditation manual, as taught by the Buddha.

  1. Contemplation of the body (Kaya)
  2. Contemplation of the feelings (Vedana)
  3. Contemplation of the mind (Citta)
  4. Contemplation of the mind objects (Dhamma)

(from Digha Nikaya 22, Majjhima Nikaya 10)

The four subjects include the mindfulness and awareness of breathing, feelings, sensations, the mind, emotions, and subjects of the Dhamma.
