Ānāpāna-sati

Awareness or mindfulness on & by in-and-out-breathing, is one of the most important trainings for reaching mental concentration and the 4 absorptions jhāna. In the Satipatthāna Sutta M. 10, D. 22 and elsewhere, 4 methods of practice are given, which may also serve as basis for insight meditation. The speech on Awareness by Breathing' Ānāpānasati Sutta, M. 118 and other texts have 16 methods of practice, which divide into 4 groups of four. The first three apply to both calm samatha and insight-meditation, while the fourth refers to pure insight praxis only. With attentive mind he breathes in, with attentive mind he breathes out.

Akuppa-dhamma

The unshakeable state; is that of one who has attained full mastery over the absorptions jhāna. In Pug. 4 it is said: What person is unshakable? If a person gains the meditative attainments of the fine-material and formless sphere rūpāvacara-arūpāvacara; and he gains them at his wish, without any problem or strain with free choice of place, object and duration, and enters them and emerges from them effortlessly, then it is impossible that in such a person the attainments may become shaken through negligence. This person is unshakeable.
