"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Goofaholix what do you focus on to "observe hearing"?

All the world is on fire, All the world is burning, All the world is ablaze, All the world is quaking. That which does not quake or blaze, That to which worldlings do not resort, Where there is no place for Mara:That is where my mind delights. (SN 5.7)

By degrees, little by little,
from moment to moment,
the wise purify themselves,
as a smith purifies silver.
—Dhammapada 239

Goofaholix, When we practice the U Ba Khin method, the same mental faculty that is developed in Anapana Sati is brought to "Vipasana". The focus is sometimes narrow (like focusing on the soles of the feet) and sometimes it is widened to take in the whole body etc.. Sometimes it is fairly active and sometimes more passive but it is still the same mental faculty.

When I said "How about focusing directly on the sound of the chanting as it resonates?" what do you think I meant?

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.
