Very profound teachings... thanks thanks thanks....
Wonderful.. I´m Buddhist... follow the Tibetan Buddhism, and I never found so great explanation about how to cultivate the Jhanas.... Thank you Mark... Gratitude!
Very accessible introduction and explanation - really good at drawing you into the core objectives without getting bogged down in too much detail - thanks Mark!
Do understand the basic knowledge of Buddhism better.
So far, I am loving it!

I didn't know what Jhana meditation was. I liked the way I learned with Mark, how should I breathe and relax my body completely. This is how I like a explanation. Mark talk very soft, kind and calm. Nice. Thank you. I understand now how to let go and smile. KT H
Yes, I am working through 'The Mind Illuminated' and was getting a bit bogged down. I am looking for an alternative way of looking at the Jhanas.
It's a shame that there is no information to continue the study of the jhanas. How to develop necessary concentration, how to measure your progress towards the Jhanas and what other people have experienced.
