      Bhante, respect.

      I am possibly missing something, because it seems to me the terms
      samatha·jhaana and vipassanaa·jhaana emerge already in the Nikaya:

      Samyutta Nikaya XXXV.204 (Kimsuka Sutta)

      Anguttara Nikaya II.29 (Vijja-bhagiya Sutta)

      Anguttara Nikaya IV.94 (Samadhi Sutta)

      Anguttara Nikaya IV.170 (Yuganaddha Sutta) Anguttara Nikaya X.71
      (Akankha Sutta)

      with the last one explicitely connecting jhaana to both samatha and
      vipassanaa.
