On-line sources teaching Anapanasati Sutta

Posts: 1190 Join Date: 1/17/15 Recent Posts
Hi,

I am looking for on-line sources of teaching by teachers or organization that teach the Anapanasati Sutta as the main form of Buddhist meditation.

I've seen the sutta translated in a variety of ways. If possible I would like to find teaching on interpretations like this:

http://dharmafarer.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/7.13-Anapanasati-S-m118-piya.pdf

(3) when he trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing the whole body, I will breathe in’;
when he trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing the whole body, I will breathe out’;
...

(5) trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing zest (joy), I will breathe in’;
when he trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing zest (joy), I will breathe out’;
(6) when he trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing happiness, I will breathe in’;
when he trains himself thus: ‘Experiencing happiness, I will breathe out’;
...
(10) when he trains himself thus: ‘Gladdening the mind, I will breathe in’;
when he trains himself thus: ‘Gladdening the mind, I will breathe out’;

This interpretation is fairly close to the type of meditation I do. I would like to find out more about traditions that practice this way and what else they teach.

Thanks in advance.

Culadasa's The Mind Illuminated is a fantastic technical manual for anapanasati. He has plenty of material free online, but the book is definitely worth buying.

Edit: here's a link to Culadasa's talks on te anapanasati sutta: https://dharmatreasure.org/tag/anapanasati-sutta/
