Example text

This is not to say that scholars are intentionally making wrong statements, but sometimes they get caught looking at tiny details or parts of the Dhamma with such a narrow view that they tend to lose a truth. The description of the fixed absorption jhānas as found in the Visuddhi Magga doesn’t exactly match the description given in the suttas and, in most cases, these jhānas are very different from what is found in the suttas. For example, the Visuddhi Magga talks about having a sign (nimitta in Pāli).

In the Kālāma Sutta, the Buddha explicitly stated that you should not follow any beliefs blindly, but rather, you should always examine and investigate for yourself. These admonishments were put forth for the purpose of opening and expanding your experience so that you will not be attached to any particular doctrine without thorough investigation. This kind of honest inquiry into any particular doctrine opens up your mind and expands your consciousness. Then, you will see what leads to a close or tight mind and what leads to a mind that is open and clear.

This can be a light or visualized mind-made pictures which arise in mind at certain times when you are practicing jhāna meditation (absorption concentration (appanā samādhi) or when you get into access concentration (upacāra samādhi) meditation). With each type of “concentration” a nimitta of some kind arises. When this happens, you are practicing a “concentration” type of meditation practice like what the Bodhisatta rejected as being the way to Nibbāna! However, if you were to check the suttas, the description of nimittas arising in mind has never been mentioned.
