Recently I was surprised to read this quote, attributed to Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi:
"I do not know of any discourse in which the Buddha teaches satipatthana meditation and systematic vipassana meditation to householders. Those are monastic practices, which normally presuppose renunciation — or at least a strong disposition to renunciation."
Is that true? If so, does it really mean that the Buddha meant to reserve meditation for monastics only?
(To give some context, this quote occurs near the end of this longer article which asks whether or not it is possible to separate mindfulness practice from Buddhism: http://www.salon.com/2014/12/06/mindfulness_truthiness_problem_sam_harris_science_and_the_truth_about_buddhist_tradition/ )
