The Sphere of the Fourth Jhana

Postby brahmabull » Sat Oct 29, 2011 10:02 pm

Hi Everyone,

I did a little searching around this site and could not find an answer. I have read in Vasubhandu's kosha and found one Theravada blurb on Google books that the realm of the fourth jhana/dhyana is not subject to destruction at the end of the world system. Then it would not be comprised of elements or caused by kammic/karmic winds. Is this correct? Having a hard time with, how then, someone born in this realm would be impermanent. I would be very appreciative is someone knowledgeable in Abhidhamma could explain this bit about Cosmology to me. Thank you,

B
