Anapana is a simple and practical way to achieve mastery over the mind and lead a happy, wholesome life. Anapana is a Pali word which means observation of natural, normal respiration, as it comes in and as it goes out.
Observation of the breath is the ideal object for meditation because it is always available and it is completely non-sectarian. The breath can be used by anyone, it doesn’t matter what race or religion or class or country they belong to. Anapana is very different from techniques that are based on the artificial regulation of breath. There are no rites or rituals involved in the practice or presentation of Anapana.
Anapana provides a tool to deal with the fears, anxieties and pressures across all age groups, especially children. Besides helping to calm and concentrate the mind, Anapana help people to understand themselves better and gives them an insight into the workings of their own minds. Because of its simplicity, the technique is easy to understand and practice.
Benefits of Anapana meditation include -
- A calmer and steadier mind
- Improved concentration and memory
- Easier inculcation of good qualities
- Better relationships with peers and relatives
- Reduced nervousness during exams and many others
