Santikaro – Advice to Meditators: Embodied Properties Facilitate Mindful Breathing – September 17, 2017

In Advice to Rahula (MN 62), the Buddha advises his still young son to ground himself in basic realities of embodied life before settling in with breathing. Whether the breathing or something else is the primary locus of mindful presence, being well grounded in physical realities allows us to settle, be non-reactive, and cultivate insight into the flow of selfless experience.
