Description

Mindfulness of the breath (Ānāpāṇasati) is reglularly used by many meditators to develop samādhi (concentration), and it is indeed an excellent meditation object for that purpose. But it can also be used to develop vipassana (insight), and it would be a regrettable limitation to our bhāvanā if we neglected that aspect.


In this short Dhammatalk, Ajahn Dhammasiha expounds on instructions given by the Buddha himself. In Majjhima Nikāya/Middle Length Discourses #118 'Ānāpāṇasati Sutta' we find precise guidance how to use the breath to depelop all 4 Satipaṭṭhānā (Foundations of Mindfulness), in order to cultivate both calmness (samatha) and insight (vipassana).
