I'll continue to add parts to the series 🔗MN 125 restoration project in the next week or two,

but you'll want to at least read this one, it has a wonderful simile of the war elephant training in simulated war, as a simile for the monk developing the four jhanas.



MN 125 and MA 198 imperturbability developed by 4 jhanas is equivalent to khamo (resilience) of AN 5.113 and AN 5.139
