Beginning with the meaning of the word jhāna, Ajahn Pasanno explains jhāna as a fundamental clarity and stillness that the mind can experience. The Paṇcālacaṇḍana Sutta (SN 2:7) describes it as opening amidst confinement. In response to questions, Ajahn Pasanno clarifies the difference between mindfulness and concentration. This talk was offered on the October 10, 2015 Upasika Day, “Jhāna – A Practical Approach” at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery.
