  1. Dear Everyone I have some questions regarding Samatha Meditation and Anapanasati meditation, what are the similarities and differences between them? Does the practice of Anapanasati lead to Samatha ("tranquility of the mind", or "mind-calmness")? Are both intertwined conceptually? Does either practice lead to a similar outcome? Does anyone know of any resources for Samatha practice (I am interested)? I am currently reading Practical Insight Meditation by Mahási Sayádaw which has lead to some clarification. Lately I have decided to take a step back from Vipassana meditation and prioritize more on relaxation meditation (Yoga Nidra) daily and maintain an Anapanasati practice. Yet I'm a bit confused and seeking some clarity on the topic. I often believe that I just over analyzing the process which is common with me. Any thoughts, insights, or advice from those who encountered the similar issues would be kindly appreciated. Kind Regards Rui
  2. I am linking to an excellent page on Patrick's site separately here, though I have also linked the page in the Starting Mediation thread, and also in the Stretch Teacher thread, for different reasons. The 13th to 16th recordings on this page are the lying mediations I presented there. http://dharmasalon.net/Audio/bubs_december_2016/bubs_december_2016.html I am very grateful to PK for this resource.
