Anapana sati - Abode of the noble ones???

Postby Cittasanto » Sun May 06, 2012 9:15 pm

OK I remember the Buddha discribed Anapana sati and the abode of the noble ones or something similar, but can not remember any references, or find a document where this and alternative names are given, any help?
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

At SN 54:11 The Buddha states:

"If anyone, bhikkhus, speaking rightly could say of anything:
'It is a noble dwelling, a divine dwelling, the Tathagata's dwelling,' it is of concentration by mindfulness of breathing that one could rightly say this." - Bodhi translation pg 1779


Hope this helps!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah
