Anapanasati Retreat - Hinayana (Part 1)

by Viveka

Viveka's fresh and vibrant take on the traditional practice of anapanasati - mindfulness with breathing. Using the breath as a stabilizing presence, this series of meditations (including two fully-guided practices) is designed to help us discover the nature of reality itself by encouraging us to notice what is actually happening each moment in a direct and open way. Anapanasati is a complete path to awakening or enlightenment.

Please note that some small noise artefacts can be heard occasionally on these tracks due to a poor original recording.

Retreat recorded at Taraloka Retreat Centre, 2003

This talk is part of the series Anapanasati Retreat 2003.
