respected elders & dear dhamma friends,
regards and greetings!
i am curious to know what exactly is samma samadhi.
a) is samma samadhi the practice of samadhi that is done AFTER being established in sila (precepts) and minimum being the 5 precepts (pancasila)? is this what constitutes samma-samadhi? is this kusala cittassa ekaggata?
b) is samma samadhi the practice of samadhi that is done AFTER being established in the realization of samma ditthi (catu ariya sacca through the bhavana of tilakkhana) at least to the sacca level if not kicca & kata? is this kusala cittassa ekaggata?
can samma samadhi kammatthana be outside the list of 40 samadhi kammatthanas taught by the buddha?
can kasina meditation be samma samadhi?
can anapanasati (as samadhi. not vipassana) be called samma samadhi in the following scenarios:
= the practitioner does not keep good sila
= the practitioner has not practiced insight (vipassana) before the practice of samadhi
= …no sila and no insight
in abhidhammic terms - what constitutes the base of samma samadhi? a kusala citta or maha kusala citta? (a vipassana citta is a maha kusala citta)
kindly let me know.
