Publisher's Summary

Freedom from suffering is not only possible, but the means for achieving it are immediately within our grasp - literally as close to us as our own breath. This is the 2,500-year-old good news contained in the Anapanasati Sutra, the Buddha's teaching on cultivating both tranquility and deep insight through full awareness of breathing. In this book, Larry Rosenberg brings this timeless meditation method to life. Using the insights gained from his many years of practice and teaching, he makes insight meditation practice accessible to modern practitioners.

    "Lifesaving"

    Loved it. Always wanted something that explained meditation in detail. Would have liked clearer explanations sometimes making it less mystical (but that could have been my ego!)

    "Beautifully Executed"

    The narrator of this book did a great service to the author's interesting and well written material. I listened to it several times and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the importance of taking each moment of life a breath at a time. Bravo!

    "Best meditation book I’ve read"

    Simply the best book I’ve come across on breath meditation. It really gets into the nitty-gritty questions that Westerners have with “just” sitting there. He sprinkles in anecdotes from his experiences that keep the narrative moving; these are generally enlightening and often funny, as when he’s bitten by a mosquito during a meditation session where the participants aren’t allowed to move lest a monk beat them with the “stick of compassion.” And then there’s a chapter about how to incorporate everything you’ve just learned into a typically hectic life. Grade: A

    The narration perfectly captures the book's vibe. In fact, I’m now seeking out Ballerini's titles simply to hear his narration of more philosophical titles.
