Study and Practice Series – Anapanasati

Study and Practice Series: The Anapanasati Sutta          

Course Description:

Many forms of insight practice come from the ancient teachings of the Buddha and his disciples as documented in the suttas. In Study and Practice Series, we bring the elements of sutta study and practice together to enrich and deepen our Dharma practice. The sessions include teachings, discussions, practices, and Q&A.

The first series will focus on The Anapanasati Sutta found in Majjhima Nikaya MN 118 – the discourse on mindfulness of breathing.

We recommend purchasing The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha in the long run. There are also several online translations available for this sutta at  Sutta Central and Dhamma Talks
