Kasiṇa Meditation Guide

Post by Ceisiwr »

For those interested there is a good online guide to Kasiṇa meditation which draws on a few sources: https://media.voog.com/0000/0037/7838/f ... 0TOIM..pdf
“The mental and material are really here,
But here there is no human being to be found,
For it is void and merely fashioned like a doll—
Just suffering piled up like grass and sticks.”

You’re welcome. My only contention would the the recommendation to focus on the retinal after image which fades. That isn’t the object of concentration. The concept is.

I will have to look at the great pdf book written by a PhD. Thank you. Any thoughts on the possibility of lite kasinas? With no appearance of kasina visualizations but make jhana feel unique when attempting kasina practice? Kind of seeking some spiritual direction... Kind of seeking verification... Thanks for any comment. Looks like a great book ...
