The Factors of Jhana

The Buddha time and again urged his followers to try to attain the Jhānas (Stages of Meditation), but nowadays few people know how to attain them. This animation describes step by step how to recognise and cultivate the factors of Jhāna.

Still one has to remember, that this is an idealised version of the arising of the Jhāna factors,…mainly for making clear the meaning of the terms. In actual practice, things might not progress as smoothly as depicted here.

The light shown, in Buddhist terms is always a manifestation of the 5 spiritual faculties (Indriyas), that is, faith (or inspiration), energy, mindfulness (clarity), a capacity to unify the mind and wisdom.
