Anapana sati in Pali means ‘mindfulness of breathing ‘, “sati” means mindfulness and the word Anapana” in Pali refers to The Art of Inhalation and Exhalation, Pali was a Middle Indo-Aryan language which was used by Buddha in his days.

Anapanasati was originally taught by the Buddha in several sutras including vipassana and Anapanasati Sutta. Another synonyms of Anapanasati means to feel the sensations caused by the movements of the breath in the body, as is practiced in the context of mindfulness.

Anapanasati is a core meditation practiced in various Buddhist schools of thoughts.

Practicing Anapana sati Meditation

Anapanasati meditation is a Art of watchfulness, by bringing our entire awareness on the incoming and outgoing breath. While staying aware of the inhalation and exhalation, during the entire period of meditation we have to be aware of only one thing and that is the breath, If the breath is long, then notice that the breath is long, if the breath is short, to notice that the breath is short.

During this meditation be absolutely sure that you make no effort to change the pattern of breathing and just be a watcher and witness to your incoming and outgoing breathe.

Bringing all the awareness only on the spot where the breath enters and leaves the nostrils (i.e., the nostril and upper lip area). Becoming aware of the breath without counting

By mastering this meditation, you can also master your emotion; practice this meditation in your day to day life.

Mastering Emotion with Anapana sati Meditation

Whenever you are in state of any emotions, watch and witness your breathe, when you get angry, or happy or even when you are spending intimate time with your loved one, maintain perfect equanimity to your breathe and do not try to change the breathe, just be a watcher and witness the breathe coming in and out of your nostril and with gradual practice you will notice that emotions have no longer any effects on your consciousness, you will be master of your consciousness in all situation.

Advance stage of Anapana sati is Vipassana meditation which goes beyond watching our breathe.
