AN V 29 Walking Meditation

 

Caṅkama Sutta #

 

 

Monks, 

There are five benefits of walking [meditation]. [1]

 

What five?

 

(1) One can patiently bear up with long travels,

(2) One can patiently strive [in meditation],

(3) One is healthy,

(4) What one has eaten and consumed is properly digested,

(5) The samādhi attained while walking stands for a long time. [2]

 

 

These are the five benefits of walking meditation monks.

 

 


[1] “Pañcime, bhikkhave, caṅkame ānisaṃsā.

[2] Addhānakkhamo hoti, padhānakkhamo hoti, appābādho hoti, asitaṃ pītaṃ khāyitaṃ sāyitaṃ sammā pariṇāmaṃ gacchati, caṅkamādhigato samādhi ciraṭṭhitiko hoti.
