Example text

Knowledge and Vision (¤àõadas-sana-visuddhi). And the sixteen insight-knowledges are the knowledges (¤àõa) of: 1. Analysing Mentality-materiality (nàmaråpa-pariccheda¤àõa), 2. Discerning Cause and Condition (paccaya-pariggaha¤àõa), 3. Comprehension (sammasana-¤àõa), 4. Arising and Passing-away (udayabbaya-¤àõa), 5. Dissolution (bhaïga-¤àõa), 6. Terror (bhaya-¤àõa), 7. Danger (àdãnava-¤àõa), 8. Disenchantment (nibbidà-¤àõa), 9. Desire for Deliverance (mu¤citu-kamyatà-¤àõa), 10. Reflection (pañisaïkhà-¤àõa), 11.

Of the earth-element, but concentrate on only the concept of earth. Continue to develop this uggahanimitta until it becomes pure and clear, and is the pañibhàga-nimitta. You should then expand the pañibhàga-nimitta a little at a time, in all ten directions, and then develop this meditation up to the fourth jhàna. The Water Kasiõa To develop the water kasiõa, you should use a bowl, bucket, or well of pure, clear water. Concentrate on the concept of water as ‘water, water’, and develop the nimitta as you did the earth kasiõa.

The produced body is also subject to many diseases, of, for example, the eyes, ears, and heart. So you should consider with wisdom that, because you have a produced body, made of materiality, you are subject to various kinds of suffering, and that if you can be free of that materiality, you can also be free of the suffering. Even though a fourth fine-material jhàna surpasses gross physical materiality, it is still based on it. Thus you need to surmount the kasiõa materiality. Having considered this, and with no desire now for the kasiõa materiality, you should re-establish the fourth jhàna with one of the nine kasiõas, such as the earth kasiõa.
