Video of the Right Samadhi Dharma Talk
RIGHT SAMADHI (samyak-samadhi)
At long last we finally come to the eighth stage or limb of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. Here once again we come across the gnarly issues that translators face in their work.
For the most part Samadhi is usually translated as concentration but this totally misses the mark. Samadhi is a hard concept to pin down for most people. It’s slippery and illusive. Abstract and profound. Not easily conveyed.
This is an introductory talk on Right Mindfulness from the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. For a full explanation of the path be sure to checkout: https://zenawakened.com/eightfold-path/

(Dana) Giving: The practice of giving is universally recognized as one of the most basic human virtues, a quality that testifies to the depth of one’s humanity and one’s capacity for self-transcendence. In the teaching of the Buddha, too, the practice of giving claims a place of special eminence, one which singles it out as being in a sense the foundation and seed of spiritual development.
