Speaking of Patisambhidamagga - here's how "ekaggatta"is explained in Patisambhidamagga-Atthakattha:

"Tattha cittassa ekaggatāti nānārammaṇavikkhepābhāvato ekaṃ ārammaṇaṃ aggaṃ uttamaṃ assāti ekaggo, ekaggassa bhāvo ekaggatā."

Patisambhidamagga-Atthakatha 1.230

"Here the 'ekaggatā' of the mind is the state (bhāvo) when one thing is predominant (ekaggo). One thing is predominant when there's no perplexity (vikkhepa) on multiple bases and one basis (ārammaṇa) is predominant (agga) and preeminent (uttama)."

Hi Alexei,

There is no support from the sutta saying that one only goes beyond the 5 senses in the others states and not Samma Samadhi. I haven't read anything from the sutta saying that this is the case.


I was answering Dmytro's post in conjunction with your post. The bottom post on nimita was a reply to Dmytro's . I just removed your name from the quote already.

with Metta,
