Higher Equanimity with Irritating Raptures
Higher Equanimity but with strong undercurrent of raptures. For an entire hour these waves of rapture that were quite intense as sensations in the chest area some but mainly in the arms from bottom of biceps down through hands. What an odd combination. I rarely experience raptures or piti anymore. I normally skip over the lower jhana and plop into 4, 5, or 6. I find the intense raptures irritating, although I remember back when I found them desirable. Maybe I should look more closely at those notations.
EQ nana, 2nd jhana aspect. If that makes any sense (and even if it doesn’t)
