      Hi Jon.


      Jon: Of course, hearing the dhamma, and hearing it repeatedly, is essential for the development of understanding. But hearing the true dhamma is heavily dependent on association with the 'good friend', because it must be dhamma that is explained in a way that is meaningful for us at that time. Otherwise it does not condition the arising of understanding or calm.

      RE: How does hearing the Dhamma properly explained lead to calm [samatha]? as well as understanding?

      Thanks,
      Rob E.
