Minding The Breath
In this book are interpretations of the Pali instructions of the Anapanasati sutta followed by a commentary or explanation of each of the sixteen areas. As we progress along the passages there will be, written, guided meditations provided in order to allow one to get a clearer idea of how to use, and incorporate the meditation into their practice. It is not enough to only read and understand the sutta; one must have an actual method of practice. The guided meditations are meant to provide this.
As you do these meditations you will likely come to the realization that these practices will be both rewarding and for some, challenging. The meditations progress from simple instructions pertaining to the breath alone. They then move toward deeper, relational reflections concerning the activity of the mind. The instructions then progress toward the Buddhist teaching, of impermanence and the true understandings of the nature of reality. During all of the sixteen steps, the breath is the primary subject or an important part of these practices.
Sixteen separate meditations in all, each one being unique, but still very much a part of the whole. Take your time as you work your way through this book. Its intention is to present an uncomplicated and enjoyable method of meditation practice. As described by the Buddha.
A book that takes you step by step through meditation practice given by the Buddhist Sutta "Anapanasati" translated as Mindfulness of Breathing. Included are sixteen separate areas of the practice. This is a must have for every meditator.
