Anapana sati - Abode of the noble ones???

Postby Cittasanto » Sun May 06, 2012 9:15 pm

OK I remember the Buddha discribed Anapana sati and the abode of the noble ones or something similar, but can not remember any references, or find a document where this and alternative names are given, any help?


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
