Anapanasati – Mindfulness of Breathing

Anapanasati – Mindfulness of Breathing. For the first time in the English here is a comprehensive manual of the Buddhist meditation known as ânàpànasati  – the development of mindfulness of breathing. Although this manual is primarily intended for the benefit of monks, it will greatly assist laymen, too, who wish to undertake a course of meditation but who do not have the guidance of a teacher. Originally published in Thai, this manual is one of the major works of the Ven. Buddhadàsa Bhikkhu and delivered in 1959 in the form of a series of lectures to monks of Suanmokkha Monastery, Chaiya, Thailand. Ven. Buddhadàsa Bhikkhu, a major voice in the Buddhist world, is an accepted master of Buddhist meditation. In constructive positive language, the manual guides the meditator through the 16 steps of ânàpànasati. Download the ebook here (550 pages PDF):
