Samadhi: Exploring the Range of Teachings and Controversies on Concentration & Jhana with Richard Shankman RSS iTunes

This day of practice and teaching explained the various ways samadhi is taught and clarified its place in insight meditation. After an in-depth examination of samadhi in the source texts, we discussed some of the most important questions, such as: Are insight and concentration two separate paths of meditation, or is there a single path that synthesizes the two into one practice? What is the nature of the deepest stages of concentration known as Jhana? Is deep concentration necessary for liberating insight? In answering these questions we compareed different views and approaches to samadhi.
