Jhanas and Hindrances

Postby barcsimalsi » Fri Nov 22, 2013 4:31 am

I often read about hindrances are suppressed when one attained Jhana, and the wholesome state of mind can even last for some while after coming out from Jhana. Is there a phenomenal explanation regarding the process?

Additional question:
Are hindrances suppressed by Jhanic factors?
Or
Suppressing hindrances lead to the arising of Jhanic factors?

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
