Ending Physical Pain »


Jhãna Absorption eliminates all Physical Pain!

The Blessed Buddha once pointed out:
Where does all bodily pain cease, without even a trace remaining?
Aloof from all sense-desire and secluded from any disadvantageous state,
one enters and remains in the first jhāna absorption of directed thought
and sustained thinking, joined with pleasure and joy, born of sole seclusion.
It is right there, that all bodily pain ceases without a trace remaining...

Therefore do beings reborn at the fine-material brahma level, never feel
any physical pain, since they are continuously absorbed in this first jhāna..!
The amateur meditator can use this absence of pain as a diagnostic tool:
If pain is still felt anywhere in the body, then the present meditative state
cannot be first or any higher jhāna, but must be a case of calm (samatha),
preparatory concentration (parikamma-samādhi) or near neighbourhood

On how to attain the Jhāna absorptions:


Microscopic, astronomic, or other visions are not uncommon during jhāna...
