TitleBody Investigation vs. samadhi
Date31 Jan 2010
LocationWat Pa Baan Taad
Content / Description

Not confusing body investigation and samadhi: rapture, joy, peacefulness and complete stillness are different faces of samadhi. Body investigation brings unpleasant feelings and is usually tiring. We cut up the body, to see the loathsomeness and get its true nature. “The body doesn't know what pain is”. By nullifying lust and hate, you will never understand them, you have to understand how they work. Be patient with the work of investigation.
