Keeping the Breath in Mind & Lessons in Samadhi

Posted on | August 28, 2012 | No Comments

Keeping the Breath in Mind & Lessons in SamadhiKeeping the Breath in Mind & Lessons in Samadhi is a ‘how to’ book. It teaches the liberation of the mind, not as a mindboggling theory, but as a very basic skill that starts with keeping the breath in mind. The teachings here are drawn from the works of Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo (1906-61), one of Thailand’s most renowned teachers of Buddhist meditation practices. Ajaan Lee was a forest monk—one who prefers to live in the seclusion of the forest and makes meditation the central theme of his practice—so his teachings grow out of personal, practical experience, although he also makes a point of relating them to standard Buddhist doctrine. The book is in two parts: The first is a basic guide to the techniques of breath meditation—Ajaan Lee’s specialty—and gives two methods that he developed at separate points in his career. The second part consists of excerpts from five of his talks dealing with the issues that tend to arise in the course of meditation. Download the free ebook here (45 pages/240Kb):
