Larry Rosenberg grew up in Coney Island in a working-class family. His father, who had Marxist leanings, came from 14 generations of rabbis.He got his BS at Brooklyn College and his Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Chicago, wherehe also subsequently taught. He later became an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard. Disappointed with his experience with the academia, he turned to intensive Buddhist practice. A major turning pointthat influenced this decision was his introduction to the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and Vimala Thakar.He received Zen training with Korean Master Seung Sahn and Japanese Master Katagiri Roshi for 8 years before coming to Vipassana. Anagarika Munindra was his first Vipassana teacher.His book Breath by Breath is a clear description of the practice of anapanasati (mindful breath meditation). Hisemphasis on the breath as an object of meditationwas, in part, inspired by his encounter with the Thai meditation teacher Buddhadasa.Anapanasati also forms the basis of his teachingsat the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center.
