Right Concentration

Topics Include: 1) The definition of spiritual maturity from a Theosophical perspective and the role of meditation. 2) The definition of samadhi or concentration according to Bhikkhu Bodhi. 3) The difference between samadhi and the concentration needed by a soldier in battle to kill or be killed. 4) The two characteristics of samadhi: prolonged focussed concentration and tranquillity of mind. 5) The qualities of a mind untrained in concentration and how concentration softens and makes the mind more pliable. 6) Understanding meditation as an altered state of consciousness. 7) Concentration as an accurate reflector of reality as it truly is, not as we normally experience it.
