Издательство: Shambhala Publications. with David Guy. Foreword by.

Rosenberg is not only profound, but witty. His book is full of meaningful and sometimes very humorous anecdotes from his years of practice and teaching. With extraordinary lucidity he plumbs the depths of this simple practice, showing us that To contemplate breathing is to contemplate life itself.

Shambhala Publications, 9 нояб. Freedom from suffering is not only possible, but the means for achieving it are immediately within our grasp-literally as close to us as our own breath. This is the 2,500-year-old good news contained in the Anapanasati Sutra, the Buddha's teaching on cultivating both tranquility and deep insight through full awareness of breathing.

And he's not in bad company since the Buddha himself delivered a sutra on the subject. It's Rosenberg's earthy humor and patient instruction that make him such a popular teacher and that make Breath by Breath a rewarding read.

Simply the best book I’ve come across on breath meditation. It really gets into the nitty-gritty questions that Westerners have with “just” sitting there. He sprinkles in anecdotes from his experiences that keep the narrative moving; these are generally enlightening and often funny, as when he’s bitten by a mosquito during a meditation session where the participants aren’t allowed to move lest a monk beat them with the “stick of compassion.” And then there’s a chapter about how to incorporate everything you’ve just learned into a typically hectic life. Grade: A

P.S. I love Thich Nhat Hanh and have read a huge number of his books. I cherish them, but this one really sunk in so maybe it's Rosenberg's American perspective that was so useful.
It's a shame this book out of print, but a blessing it's available both as a Kindle book and used.
In essence an elaboration of the Buddha's brilliant Anapanasati sutta - a celebratory catalog of all the liberating work that can be performed taking the breath as inspiration - this is, just simply, a "must have" volume for any meditator's library.
The Anapanasati Sutra is the simplest of the several teachings of the Buddha on mindfulness and meditation. In many ways it is the very basis of the Vapassana tradition and the core of Insight Meditation. Mr. Rosenberg does not get carried away with this teaching, but approaches the sutra in a traditional manner. Of the many meditation books I have read, including better known Insight Meditation books, this is the easiest to understand and follow. Mr. Rosenberg is a very experienced teacher of this approach to meditation and the book shows it.

This was the only Dharma book I took on a self-guided meditation retreat last winter. I am now on my third reading of it and I am finding it as helpful now as the first time. If you are interested in a basic approach to Insight Meditation and a clear description of the Buddha's most elementary teaching on meditation, this is for you. I give this my highest recommendation.
This is an excellent introductory book for any meditation student, but it particularly well suited to a serious beginner.
The book is targeted to a Western audience and presents the essential concepts of Insight Meditation using the Apapanasati Sutra and the practices of the Theravada tradition as a framework.

I feel this book goes into more depth than most popular books on the subject, but it is still very readable and contains a wealth of information. It is also contains essential Pali definitions without getting bogged down in too many Pali terms or esoteric language. He is also very clear in his explanations and complete in terms of presenting the important concepts.

For an even deeper dive, try Mindfulness with Breathing by Buddhadasa Bhikku. This is a more difficult read, but well worth the effort. In fact, Larry Rosenberg based a lot of his book on his contact with this meditation master and he references him in his bibliography. Rosenberg also wrote the forward to Mindfulness with Breathing. In short, I think both books are complimentary and together form a comprehensive introduction.
If you're interested in Vipassana Buddhist Meditatiion which is based on the breath, this book is for you. I had read Phillip Moffat, Jack Kornfield, Sylvia Boorstein and Adyashanti which are very good, but this book had helpful new ideas for me even though it was written before the others.All of these authors are Western teachers who have lots of experience helping people with their daily lives.

My only problem is with Amazon's computer. I have an old Mac and I always have trouble. I got two of Rosenberg's books because I had to go on the website a second time.. I couldn't find the original page, but somehow it was still there.
Excellent, excellent, excellent... truly is helping me heal from the recent unexpected heart attack death of my beloved husband of 28 years. Recommending to all my friends and buying as gifts.
This good book was recommended by another reviewer (see Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness by Jon Kabat-Zinn), thank you very much. I like breath-focused meditation because it requires only respectful attention, and no true-believer religious dogma. However, six months into daily practice, I did want to learn a bit more about how Buddhism goes about attributing so much importance to "just breathing." Rosenberg's book is just the ticket: straightforward basics in the context of different kinds of Buddhism, with beautiful writing, a bit of humor, and not even a hint of arrogance or strident tone. Organization around the Anapanasati Sutra, the Buddha's own instructions about breath to meditators, gives a particularly authentic quality. Now, if there were just one more thing: a Kindle version! My plan is to re-read this book and Full Catastrophe... every year or two.
Breath by Breath, by Larry Rosenberg: This is the third or fourth copy I've gotten of this book, as the others have been given away. I like Rosenberg's practical, down-to-earth approach to teach the practice of mindfulness in the Anapanasati Sutra,.
