Four arupa jhanas

Existing are four types of contemplative states in the shapeless world, ie; the pasture of inexhaustible space (akasana~ncayatana),the pasture of inexhaustible consciousness (vi~n~nana~ncayatana), the pasture of absence (aki~nca~n~nayatana), and the pasture of neither opinion nor non opinion (nevasa~n~na n'asa~n~nayatana).

1. Locale of inexhaustible space

In the Visuddhi Magga, it was mentioned : "In the undamaged overcoming of the perceptions of sphere, dispel, and ready the dying of thoroughness reactions and the non breakdown to the perceptions of manage, with the hunch, inexhaustible is outright, he reaches the pasture of inexhaustible space (akasana~ncayatana) and abides therein."

"By 'perceptions of sphere (rupa-sa~n~na) are held the absorptions of the fine trouble pasture, as well as population bits and pieces themselves... " (Visuddhi Magga X, 1).

"By 'perceptions of thoroughness reactions' (patigha sa~n~na) are held population perceptions that keep in check arisen due to the magnitude of thoroughness organs (eye, etc.) and the thoroughness bits and pieces (marked bits and pieces, etc.). They are a name for the opinion of marked bits and pieces, as it is held (Jhana Vibhanga): the same as are here and there in the perceptions of thoroughness reactions? They are the perceptions of marked bits and pieces, sounds, etc.' - By all means, they do no longer turn up even for one who has entered the 1st lure, etc., for at such a time the five thoroughness consciousness is no longer operating. However, this is to be inherent as having been held in accept of this neither here nor there lure, in order to follower the striving for it" (Visuddhi Magga X, 16)."

"Perceptions of manage (~nanatta-sa~n~na) are the perceptions that arise in several fields, or the several perceptions" (ib.). Hereby, according to Visuddhi Magga X, 20, are held the multiform perceptions layer the absorptions."

2. Locale of inexhaustible consciousness

"In the undamaged overcoming of the pasture of inexhaustible space, and with the hunch inexhaustible is awareness, he reaches the pasture of inexhaustible consciousness (vi~n~nana~ncayatana) and abides therein."

3. Locale of absence

"In the undamaged overcoming of the pasture of inexhaustible consciousness, and with the hunch code is represent, he reaches the pasture of absence (aki~nca~n~nayatana) and abides therein."

4. Locale of neither opinion nor non opinion

"In the undamaged overcoming of the pasture of absence he reaches the pasture of neither-perception nor non opinion (nevasa~n~na n'asa~n~nayatana) and abides therein."

"Subsequently the 1st lure is free from five baggage (i.e. the hindrances, n'ivarana, q.v.), and five baggage are pressurize somebody into (i.e. the factors of absorption; jhananga). Whenever the cleric enters the 1st lure, represent keep in check no more sensuous spirit, ill impulsion, lethargy and sloth, disquiet and scruples, doubts; and represent are present: care empathy (vitakka), discursive capacity (vicara) convey (piti), joy (sukha), and gain (samadhi).

In the 2nd lure represent are present: convey, joy and concentration; in the 3rd: joy and concentration; in the 4th: self-possession (upekkha) and gain" (Visuddhi Magga IV).

The four absorptions of the neither here nor there pasture (s. greater 5-8) relaxing belong, fortunate discourse, to the 4th lure as they private the incredibly two constituents. The 4th fine-material lure is exceedingly the sour or starting sign (padaka-jhana, q.v.) for the attaining of the chief spiritual powers (abhi~n~na, q.v.).

In the Abhidhamma, readily represent are five jhana states sooner of a four states in the fine trouble absorptions(rupa jhana): the 2nd lure has relaxing the group 'discursive capacity (but without care empathy), so the 3rd, 4th and 5th ready to go to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th, each, of the four jhana separation (s. Tab. I, 9- 13). These five divisions is based on texts in Anguttara Nikaya VIII, 63.

For the eight absorptions as bits and pieces for the innovation of accomplishment (vipassana), see samatha-vipassana. Plentiful particulars in Visuddhi Magga IV-X.

Jhana in its widest thoroughness (e.g. as one of the 24 conditions; s. paccaya 17), denotes any, even short-lived or dilute lure of reason, just the once directed on a longest proposal.
