'A sophisticated teaching of factor reduction'

Post by manas » Mon Jul 01, 2013 12:02 am

Hi members and guests,

I find this video very helpful in informing how I regard jhana. I like it how Ajahn Kukrit describes it as 'a sophisticated teaching of factor reduction':

"With regard to internal factors, I don't envision any other single factor like appropriate attention as doing so much for a monk in training, who has not attained the goal but remains intent on the unsurpassed safety from bondage. A monk who attends appropriately abandons what is unskillful and develops what is skillful."
- from the Itivuttaka
