"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

Thank you Geoff, - I found the asubha mahaggatta quite intriguing!

I would like to ask a question if I may- would the texts support a possibility that the 'expansive' state of mind is a pre-jhanic samadhi state, rather than the quality of the jhana itself?

I'm also thinking of expanding the anicca sanna as well now!

Hello, and welcome back to an old thread. Rather than start a new one, I thought I'd add to one that is already on topic and which I found informative.

I'm wondering if anyone knows about kasina manufacture. Do monks make their own? Are there specifications for manufacture? Are they produced commercially and sold to the monastic community?

Thanks in advance for any information you may be able to provide.

In what countries have you practiced, Ven Pesala?
