Walking Meditation in the Suttas or Commentaries

Postby Mkoll » Fri Sep 13, 2013 3:58 am

Friends,

Can anyone point me in the direction of instructions for walking meditation in the Suttas or the Commentaries? The most detailed phrase I've seen is "walking back and forth".

If there are none or you would like to share, what methods do you use?

Thank you. :smile:

:anjali:

"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

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.

- Ud 3.5
