-- MN 118: Anapanasati Sutta
Yes, the Buddha spoke of the breath, and you can find this sutta at www.accesstoinsight.org/canon/majjhima/mn118.html.
You can also see an entier index of over 700 suttas and many many books and Dharma talks at www.accesstoinsight.org/index-subject.html. There you can find lots and lots of GREAT material. Sorry, it's the Pali cannon so no Tibetan texts. Hey, what you gonna do? I hope this helps, I love this site. With Metta, Metta.
