Anapanasati

46. This intent concentration on in-and-out breathing, if cultivated and developed, is something peaceful and excellent, something perfect in itself and a pleasant way of living also.

Not only that, it dispels evil thoughts that have arisen and makes them vanish in a moment.

It is just as when, in the last month of the hot season, the dust and dirt fly up and suddenly a great rain lays it and makes it settle in a moment.

  1. This is my primary form of meditation…focusing on the in and out breath. So many thoughts arising, but always coming back to the breath. Very relaxing when I can notice my breath for even a few complete cycles.
