ANAPANA   Leave a comment

Anapana is an ancient word which means respiration.

Anapana meditation is the moment by moment awareness (attention) of the breath coming in and going out as it is.

Meditation helps children better understand themselves and how their minds work. As children learn to calm and concentrate their minds, they gain mastery over their impulses and actions.


Meditation Technique

  1. Sit in comfortable position with your back and your neck straight.
  2. If you wear glasses take them off.
  3. Keep your eyes gently closed.
  4. Keep your mouth closed.
  5. Focus all you attention on the entrance of the nostrils.
  6. Remain aware of the natural breath as if comes in, as it goes out.
  7. Don’t try to control or count the breath.
  8. Don’t add any word or imagination of any kind.
  9. When the mind wanders away, bring it gently back to the awareness of your breath.

Try to remain aware of each and every breath that comes in and goes out.
