Freedom from suffering is not only possible, but the means for achieving it are immediately within our grasp--literally as close to us as our own breath. This is the 2,500-year-old good news contained in the "Anapanasati Sutra ," the Buddha''s teaching on cultivating both tranquility and deep insight through full awareness of breathing. In this book, Larry Rosenberg brings this timeless meditation method to life. Using the insights gained from his many years of practice and teaching, he makes insight meditation practice accessible to modern practitioners.
From the Publisher:
Freedom from suffering is not only possible, but the means for achieving it are immediately within our grasp—literally as close to us as our own breath. This is the 2,500-year-old good news contained in the Anapanasati Sutra , the Buddha's teaching on cultivating both tranquility and deep insight through full awareness of breathing. In this book, Larry Rosenberg brings this timeless meditation method to life. Using the insights gained from his many years of practice and teaching, he makes insight meditation practice accessible to modern practitioners.
Annotation:
Meditation instructor Larry Rosenberg takes words attributed to the Buddha's about the vital link between breathing and meditation, otherwise known as "Anapanasati Sutra," and adapts it into an easy-to-grasp manual that is now a regular among meditation students. Everything in this book--from the title, to the chapter headings, even the material itself--is focused completely on breathing. Rosenberg drives home the point that it is not just the act of breathing, but how we consider it, that is the key to understanding the larger concepts of meditation, insight, and self-realization. Newcomer-friendly, this book begins with basic terminology and also includes a condensed method--a quick meditation for those without huge resources of time.
Author Bio
Jon Kabat-Zinn
A molecular biologist, Jon Kabat-Zinn runs a stress reduction clinic at the University of Massachusetts Health Care Center. A student of Zen, he is a proponent of the approach known as "mindfulness," which involves living in the moment. WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE YOU ARE is his most-read work. He also runs workshops and writes books on how to meditate. He has collaborated with his wife Myla Kabat-Zinn on a parenting book called EVERYDAY BLESSINGS, which applies the mindfullness approach to raising a family.
