I have only Thai explanation. This link>>>> http://topicstock.pantip.com/religious/ ... 92504.html




Thank you for the comment.

I just want to tell meditaters in the whole world "What's the Lord Buddha's breath meditation teaching." You know in Thailand where the core of Theravada; the people doesn't know this comparison. The Lord said, have to know long breathing. Nevertheless many people think that is long(space), In fact long breathing is mean long(time). So when you see the lathe craftsman who is pulling rope.The craftsman doesn't look at the rope but he know long or short. The breath meditation is the same.( The only one sample was Compared by the Lord Buddha for breathing meditation. )

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Ah, I see now. Thanks for the clarification. Hope I didn't come off too curt. It wasn't intentional, I promise.
