Anapana is the first step in the practice of Vipassana Meditation. The technique of Anapana is a simple and practical way to achieve mastery over the mind and lead a happy, wholesome life. Anapana means observation of natural, normal respiration, as it comes in and as it goes out.
Observation of breath is an ideal object for meditation because it is always available, non-sectarian and natural.
The entire teaching in all these sessions is conducted through audio of Vipassana Acarya, Shri SN Goenkaji who reintroduced this teaching in India and many other countries.
Short Anapana Meditation Sessions are held at Mahabodhi Temple, Bodhgaya & Buddha Smriti Park in Patna, Bihar. These sessions are free for all visitors to these locations.
