Hi!

"Jhana is a meditative state of profound stillness and concentration in which the mind becomes fully immersed and absorbed in the chosen object of attention. It is the cornerstone in the development of Right Concentration" (Access to Insight).

My new LJ, voila! I had a hard time thinking of a user ID, and then while reading I came across the term jhana, which I'd heard and read about before but briefly, and it made sense. See, I'm just discovering Buddhism, and it makes a lot of sense to me not just as a religion, but as a way to live your life. So naming this LJ as my "e-jhana" gives me the ability to focus on things here that are bothering me, getting them out of my head and providing calmness in the real world. I may go into more detail in another post, because my spirituality is a very personal thing for me.

That's not to say everything in this LJ is gonna be profound, or some life changing event that I experienced, or anything like that. But I will post those kinds of things, along with various other fluff. It is an online blog after all :) I'll post up filters I'm adding later once I add them, feel free to let me know which you'd like to be privy to. Enjoy!

Jhana sounds like "the zone". Nice!
