Reply To: Anapanasati 3rd and 4th bases, and beyond


Hello Abhayamudra,

You asked: “I’m wondering how the proposed revised translation of anapana (as cultivating the skillful and discarding the unskillful) affects the 3rd and 4th bases: experiencing the whole bodily formation and calming the bodily formation respectively.”

It is difficult to answer unless we understand what you mean by “bodily formations”.

What do you mean by the highlighted part?
– What do you refer to as “bodily formations”?
