People often have the idea that one practices “concentration” to achieve “special meditative states of mind” called jhana, but Ajahn Sucitto points out that in fact jhana is a daily life practice of absorbing into the wholesomeness of nature that leads to the embodiment of samadhi – a unified state of the heart. This talk was offered on April 21, 2016 at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery.
