SOMEONE HELP ME
« on: August 25, 2017, 04:55:27 pm »
Has anyone heard of the first stage of meditation in which you have a vision of a lotus flower. I think the stages go like to see, to hear, to think, and then to travel. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME
I am preety sure it is in the Pali canon somewhere. If someone knows please tell

It might have been a nimitta - a mental image which appears during meditation. However, I'm not a meditation teacher.

Its always a good idea to join a Buddhist meditation class - or if there aren't any in your area, maybe try reading "Mindfulness, Bliss and Beyond" by Ajahn Brahm.

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May they all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they never be deprived of true happiness devoid of any suffering.
May they abide in great impartiality, free from attachment to loved ones and aversion to others.
