Modern Commentaries on the Anapanasati Sutta

Postby tsurezuregusa » Mon Dec 10, 2012 4:05 pm

Hello,

I am looking for commentaries on the Anapanasati Sutta from modern practitioners/scholars that explain the 16 bases in 4 tetrads. So far I have read:

- Buddhadasa: Mindfulness on Breathing; Mindfulness with Breathing
- Vimalaramsi: Anapanasati Sutta : A Practical Guide to Mindfulness of Breathing and Tranquil Wisdom Meditation
- Pa Auk Sayadaw: Anapanasati an Introduction; Knowing and Seeing
- Bhikkhu Analayo: Aspekte der Atembetrachtung
- Bhikkhu Nanamoli: Mindfulness of Breathing in Buddhist Texts from the Pali Canon and Extracts from the Pali Commentaries.

I am especially interested in Thanissaro Bhikkhu's take on this sutta and also Ledi Sayadaw. If you can point me to any text in English or German that would be great.

I am grateful for your help.

Kind regards,
Florian

"It's easy for us to connect with what's wrong with us... and not so easy to feel into, or to allow us, to connect with what's right and what's good in us."
