Anapanasati

Taking Bhikkhu Samahita’s advice to heart, I have begun using his guided meditation of anapanasati practice every morning. Although I thought I had been practicing a form of it for the better part of a decade as taught by Venerable Thanissaro, I have been finding myself both challenged and invigorated by the later tetrads. In fact, after the first two steps of the sixteen step meditation I have had little practical experience. I believe this is a result of relying over much on one particular teacher’s interpretation rather than finding a foothold and returning to study the sutta and commentaries.

I am only just beginning again but I want to thank Venerable Samahita for helping me get back on track once more. Sabbe satta sukhita hotu!
