Anapana Meditation App for Young People

This is the official Anapana meditation app by created for young people who have taken at least one Anapana course as taught by S.N. Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin. It is a simple app provided to help them to keep up a daily Anapana meditation practice of 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening.

Anapana Meditation

Anapana meditation is awareness of the natural breath to concentrate and calm the mind. Along with practicing Sila - the 5 precepts, a code of morality, it is the preliminary practice before learning Vipassana meditation, the principle meditation technique taught by the Buddha.


Anapana courses are offered to young people world-wide. They are organized and conducted by experienced and trained Teachers. There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.


Courses are given at numerous Vipassana centers and non-center course locations around the world. Look on this app for courses offered near you.

Old Students

Wonderful app

This is my #1 in the App Store

(I am no way connected with the app or the development team)

1. Silent meditation with Gong - gives you a 10 min mindful meditation with the experience of a real meditation retreat.

2. Anapana meditation for children - is a great way to introduce children to mindful meditation, improve their concentration and make them calm and peaceful.

3. Most beautiful part of it is also to search for Vipassana meditation courses throughout the world. These courses preserve the authentic tradition, is open for people from different religions and languages. I have been a practicing Vipassana meditation for over a decade and this app is most relevant and useful for existing meditators too.
