General discussion of issues related to Theravada Meditation, e.g. meditation postures, developing a regular sitting practice, skillfully relating to difficulties and hindrances, etc.
Have any of you heard that the psychic power divine eye is needed in deeper meditation? Is this a valid concern? Also, if it is, why?

I understand that some sorts of meditation can result in such perceptions, but they are not essential in terms of the goals of Dhamma practice, so I don't think it's a concern.
