Nālakappana Sutta - is it the correct sutta?

I’m looking for the title of the sutta where info on what happens after jhana.

In this sutta , it says that it’s not just the five hindrances that disappear, two extra qualities are also absent: aratī (discontent) and tandī (weariness).


MN 64? :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face: :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you so much, ka. :pray:

Now that you’re online, may I ask another question? Is the following sentence correct?

samādhi paccayo yatha buddhañāṇāya dassanaṃ

= Jhanas are the cause for seeing things as they really are.

Dear Ajahn @Brahmali ,

Ajahn Brahm cited this sutta in his talk at Minute 35.10: https://www.youtube.com/live/vT1FDjSx490?si=t2WYVZsLtetycV8c&t=2101

:pray: :pray: :pray:


It is essentially right, but not literally right! Here is the Pali from AN 10.3:

Sammāsamādhimhi sati sammāsamādhisampannassa upanisasampannaṁ hoti yathābhūtañāṇadassanaṁ

When there is right stillness, one who has fulfilled right stillness has fulfilled the vital condition for true knowledge and vision.

Yes, that’s Nālakappana Sutta, MN 68.

Dear Ajahn @Brahmali,

Could you please tell me the Pali word Ajahn Brahm said here: https://www.youtube.com/live/vT1FDjSx490?si=gy3FicuWT8Z0uenJ&t=3470

Is it ‘parato ca ghoso’?

If it’s not too much trouble, could you please give me a reference, a sutta where this teaching is?

Yes, that’s it, or to be precise parato ghosa. It’s from MN 43, here.
