MINDFULNESS WITH BREATHING

A Manual for Serious Beginners

Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

Any practitioner, after meditating for some time, inevitably wonders what meditation method the historical Buddha Shakyamuni himself used while beneath the Bodhi Tree. Many people understand that prior to his realization, Shakyamuni Buddha studied with many of the great yogis of his time, but most do not know what method he ultimately found leads most directly to nirvana. In Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu’s book, Mindfulness With Breathing, the Thai meditation master provides practitioners with penetrating insights into the Ānāpānasati Sutta, the canonical text which many believe is the most direct transmission of Shakyamuni Buddha’s breath meditation methods. Combined with a concise translation of the sutta itself, Mindfulness with Breathing is one of the best guides to Buddhist meditation practice available in the English language.

about the author
Mindfulness with Breathing

Ajahn Buddhadasa (1906–93) is perhaps the most influential Buddhist teacher in the history of Thailand. In 1932 he founded Suan Mokkhablarama, the first modern forest monastery in Thailand. During his lifetime he was given eight honorary doctorates by Thai universities. Since the 1960s his work helped inspire a new generation of socially concerned individuals both in Thailand and throughout the world. Buddhadasa is known for his “radically conservative” re-grounding of Theravada teaching in the suttas rather than commentaries. The story of his early life is included in Sons of the Buddha.
