Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Any practitioner, after meditating for some time, inevitably wonders what meditation method the historical Buddha Shakyamuni himself used while beneath the Bodhi Tree. Many people understand that prior to his realization, Shakyamuni Buddha studied with many of the great yogis of his time, but most do not know what method he ultimately found leads most directly to nirvana. In Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu's book, Mindfulness With Breathing, the Thai meditation master provides practitioners with penetrating insights into the Anapanasati Sutta, the canonical text which many believe is the most direct transmission of Shakyamuni Buddha's breath meditation methods. Combined with a concise translation of the sutta itself, Mindfulness with Breathing is one of the best guides to Buddhist meditation practice available in the English language.

Synopsis:

An extensive explanation of anapanasati, mindfulness with in-breaths and out-breaths.

Synopsis:

This book contains beloved Thai meditation master Buddhadasa Bhikkhu's explanation of one of the most universal of all Buddhist meditation practices, mindfulness with breathing. Using a straightforward style of presentation, Buddhadasa Bhikkhu provides all you need to know to become free of stress and worry through the "simple and beautiful act of sitting quietly, alive to breathing," as taught by Buddha in his Anapanasati Sutta.
