Ever-expanding mind states with Ajahn Punnadhammo
(Buddhist Insights) Western Buddhist monk Ajahn Punnadhammo is from Arrow River Forest Hermitage. He walks an audience through a contemplation of ever-expanding mind states (known as the four formless meditative absorptions):
- the perception of infinite space
- the perception of infinite consciousness
- the perception of nothingness
- the perception of neither-perception-nor-non-perception.
