- Oct 3, 2004Dear Htoo,
Very clear, thank you.
But ruupajhana can take different objects, we have to study Larry's post
about the subjects. I was actually wondering about the arupajhaanas.
When we read in the Suttas: right concentration, this includes not only
right concentration of Noble Eightfold Path, but also right concentration
of samatha. Therefore, we have to be very careful about the context.
