Breath
来源:净心之旅 更新日期: 2016-3-24 浏览次数: 926 字号选择:  



The breath (āpāna) is the air that moves in and out of the body with the rise and fall of the diaphragm. Like most people, the ancient Indians associated life with respiration and in fact one of the Pāḷi words for animal life is pāṇa, literally ‘breathing things.’ The first Precept actually says: ‘I take the precept not to harm breathing things’ (pāṇāti pātā), meaning that bacteria, sponges, plants, etc. are not included in the Precept

Because of the connection between life and respiration, the Indians saw the breath as having some mystical significance.Ascetics also noticed that holding the breath, or breathing rapidly for extended periods, would cause changes inconsciousness which were interpreted as exalted states. Consequently, many of the types of meditation popular during theBuddha’s time focused on the breath. Before his enlightenment, one of the practices the Buddha experimented with was ‘breath retention meditation’(appāṇakaṃ jhānaṃ), which he finally gave up as making his body overwrought and agitated and causing pain (M.I,243-4).

Although the Buddha taught a meditation based on the movement of the breath (ānāpānasati), he did not do so because he believed it has any mystical power or significance. So why the breath? There were probably three reasons for this. The first is purely practical

(1) The breath is a convenient object to focus attention on and it is available to everyone.
(2) The breath’s gentle in-and-out movement has a natural ability to calm the mind
(3) Focusing on the breath can be the first step in drawing attention away from external distractions to the mind. Many mental states cause some change in thebreathing.

 When we are calm our breath is long, slow and gentle, and when we are excited it becomes short and fast. We hold our breath in expectation, huff withannoyance, sigh with sadness or regret, get exasperated, and breathe free with relief. Watching the movement of our breath naturally leads to becoming aware of themovement of our mind
