Right Concentration (Pali : Sammā- Samadhi) On 29 September 2019, long time Dhamma speaker Bro Benny Liow will be sharing what is Right Concentration based on the Eight-fold noble path and how to apply the teaching into our daily life. There will be Sutta discussions which focuses on the Fundamental teachings of the Buddha.
Right Concentration (Pali : Sammā-Samadhi)
Right concentration (sammā-samādhi) in the Eight-fold Path is defined as the 4 meditative absorptions (jhāna). In a wider sense, it also comprises the much weaker states of concentration. If it is associated with kammically wholesome (kusala) consciousness, it is right concentration. But if it is associated with kammically unwholesome (akusala) consciousness, it is wrong concentration (micchā samādhi).
Mahācattārīsaka Sutta, MN 117 The Great Forty“What, bhikkhus, is noble right concentration with its supports and its requisites, that is, right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, and right mindfulness? Unification of mind equipped with these seven factors is called noble right concentration with its supports and its requisites.
