First time poster, newbie practitioner.
I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of sources regarding the Light Kasina? A friend of mine recently told me about their method of concentration they practice. She said that, when she concentrates, she can see a very bright light, and if she focuses, she can make lines go to this spot of light. When this happens, she said she can feel the core of their brain activating, and their focus becomes excellent, and she can then go on to remember things with photographic memory. This is all while her eyes are open, mind you.
I told her that this sounds very similar to the Light Kasina that I've read about in the Visuddhimagga. In particular, the learning sign of the kasina. Does anyone have any other resources apart from this text that my friend and I can take a look at? I'd like her help with the practice, and if I can learn something along the way, that would be great.
Sources I've found thus far:
- I've got here the Color Kasina text: http://www.elixa.com/wp-content/uploads ... hikkhu.pdf
I just bought "Wisdom Wide and Deep"
I think the consciousness kasina in MN 77 also refers to the light kasina: http://www.wisdompubs.org/book/middle-l ... dayi-sutta
