"Guided Meditation – Anāpānasati"

Meditation & Buddhism | Self Improvement | Personal Growth | Motivation

This is a short 15-minute guided anāpānasati practice. Simply meaning ‘mindfulness of breathing,’ anāpānasati was the meditation practice most widely emphasized by the Buddha. It is a practice in which mindful breathing is used to develop samadhi (concentration) and achieve the state of shamatha (calm abiding) and is especially suited for those who are prone to rumination and overthinking. The Buddha said ‘Concentration by mindfulness of breathing, when developed and cultivated, is peaceful, sublime, an ambrosial dwelling, and it disperses and quells on the spot unwholesome states whenever they arise.’

David (also known as Dassetu, a Pali term simply meaning ‘one who points out or shows’) is an experienced contemplative, meditator & meditation guide who has studied the mind, meditation, and Buddhism for several years. He is the Founder of Samadhi. In his own practise and teachings, David focusses on the core themes of Early Buddhism and emphasises the practices of Shamatha (meditative quiescence), and it’s union with Vipassana on the Four Applications of Mindfulness and the Four Immeasurables – which presents a direct path leading to the realisation of our deepest nature and the potentials of consciousness, and closely follows how the Buddha himself attained enlightenment. He considers himself to be the fortunate student of many teachers, including his root lama, Lama Alan Wallace, Drub-la Tsampa Karma, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, Gyatrul Rinpoche, Chamtrul Rinpoche, and Zopa Rinpoche, Dhammachariya Paññadipa (Michael Kewley) and Bhikkhu Kakmuk
