Reply To: Early Buddhist Meditation The Four Jhanas as the Actualization of Insight


Christian found the name of the first sutta above. The following is the whole sutta and an acceptable translation for the discussion.

Kosambi Sutta (SN 12.68)

Christian, can you make your point using quotations from the English translation?
– I am trying to understand the point that you are trying to make.

By the way, please provide links to the suttas in questions/comments.
– Some textbooks use “old ways of listing suttas” and it is very difficult to trace them. Usually, it is hard to comment on a sutta without looking at the whole sutta.
