Difference between citta-samadhi and dhamma-samadhi?

Postby lojong1 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 4:46 am

What are citta-samadhi and dhamma-samadhi?
I just saw them in Samyutta Nikaya, (edited by Feer - bk 2 of 5, not in front of me right now)

Thanks Tilt,
that is the dhamma-samadhi/ righteous concentration/ concentration of the dhamma.
I am confused now about where I saw these in the first place because they were referenced together online and now I can't find them in searches. Maybe they were in someone's forum signature.

If anyone sees citta-samadhi in the suttas, or any different dhamma-samadhi entries, give us a shout?

:sage:
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

Try SN42.13 pāṭaliya sutta
a version that is in need of certain editorial can be found here

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
