Description

Ānāpāṇasati (mindfulness of the breath) is an excellent meditation object that can carry us all the way to Nibbāna. It was the Buddha's personal favorite meditation.


However, meditators may not receive the full benefits if they limit themselves to the samatha (samādhi/'concentration') aspect of breath meditation. But ānāpāṇasati can be used to develop both samtha (calm/concentration) and vipassana (insight)!


In this meditation, Ajahn Dhammasiha guides us to use the instructions of the Buddha himself to unfold the insight aspect of breath meditation (Majjhima Nikāya/Middle Length Discourses #118, 'Ānāpāṇasatisutta').
