Hello friend,

the five hindrances are completely removed through meditation on emptiness which ideally entails bare signless awareness.

Metta, karuna and recollection of Buddha however might work as well and if you are heading for 1st jhana might be appropriate objects due to closeness to piti and sukkha.

So if you want to "jump" to 4th jhana and above, leaving out jhana 1-3, emptiness might be appropriate because it does not 'carry the burden' of piti and sukkha.

I tried emptimes meditation long back (see my old post very long back) but it leads to just aware without feeling but I still not absorbed as I hear 5 sense and body presence ... it also actually takes back to breath sometimes which again brings to first. I actually needs 1,2,3,4 not 4 directly and I don’t want 5,6,7,8,cessation of conciousness at this moment. I am just want to master 1st and so on ...

For ill will use good will for desire think of impermanence for restlessness listen to sounds for sloth and torpor rub your limbs or look at the stars do walking meditation visualize a bright light in your head for doubt just simply noticing that this is doubt. Another way is to apply mindfulness in a more acute way when craving arises be aware of the craving and you will see it hurts so the mind drops it like a hot coal from a hand. Awareness is inherently wise and moral of you bring your attention to ill will and investigate it with awareness be with it the mind sees it as suffering and drops it like a hot coal.
Take care of mindfulness and mindfulness will take care of you.

They are called "hindrances" because they hinder and envelop the mind in many ways, obstructing its development (bhavana). According to the Buddhist teachings, spiritual development is twofold: through tranquillity (samatha-bhavana) and through insight (vipassana-bhavana). Tranquillity is gained by complete concentration of the mind during the meditative absorptions (jhana). For achieving these absorptions, the overcoming of the five hindrances, at least temporarily, is a preliminary condition. It is especially in the context of achieving the absorptions that the Buddha often mentions the five hindrances in his discourses.
