Happy Uposatha – Anapanasati Day

Kind of funny that in the day dedicated to the remembrance of the anapanasati sutta I am writing a post about the disadvantages of adhering too much to technique. In my desire to get back to basics and practice what the Lord Buddha taught as well as I understand it. I think I have to fastidiously grabbed hold of the techniques and lost the spirit of enquiry needed to practice rightly.

So what am I on about? Simply that I need to apply my critical thinking and Dhamma viccaya skills despite our because I yet believe there is an easy to understand “right way. ” what that means is studying a little more, questioning a little more without the blinders of craving for the situation to be something which it is not. Practicing without a fixed idea of what to expect.
