Reply To: Attempt to understand anapana for correct meditation


Thank you Also for your reply.

I would just like to share i received some kind of transmission with your words. In particular, “The hard part of the practice is to bear those bad vipaka and be determined not to do new bad kamma.” helped me to see clearly that the pain of craving/unbeautiful mental attitudes is (mostly) vipaka and needs great mindfulness as a counteraction…similar to “being tempted” and using the will/wisdom to do go towards that object of temptation. Understanding of/meditation on citta vritti/etc helps.

Again, thank you. May you continue to have all auspicious conditions for your work – may your merit fruit the ultimate happiness.
