      Dear 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.
