Mindfulness in Breathing

"The mindfulness of in and out breathing, of body contemplation, of keeping consciousness of the moment, is a noble occupation and a sublime way, leading to independence of mind and to wisdom."-Samyutta Nikaya

Anapana Sati sutta is the first part of mindfulness of the body in the Satipatthana Sutta . There is also a more detailed disclosure of this sutta by the Buddha. You can read this at the following link:

If you are not in a mood to read, there is a very good MP3 audio discussion of this sutta by Ajahn Brahm, at the Buddhist Society of Western Australia. Please visit:
