Short Introduction to Anapana Meditation
Anapana is the first step in the practice of Vipassana meditation. Anapana means observation of natural, normal respiration, as it comes in and as it goes out. It is an easy to learn, objective and scientific technique that develops concentration of the mind. Observation of the breath is the ideal object for meditation because it is always available. Anapana provides a tool to deal with the fears, anxieties and pressures across all age groups, including children. Besides helping to calm and concentrate the mind, Anapana helps people to understand themselves better and gives them an insight into the workings of their own minds. Because of its simplicity, the technique is easy to understand and practise.
Note: Participants who attend Mini Anapana sessions will not be considered as “Old Students” in this tradition. They cannot participate in any programme designated as “For Old Students only.”
