Jump to: navigation, search

dense / thick shamatha, thick calm abiding; refers to a shamatha in which you practice repeatedly at cutting down thoughts to the point where you can stay in that samadhi for extraordinary lengths of time. In the end it turns into a shravaka's cessation. Regarded as a faulty meditation in the Mahamudra tradition because there is no factor of clarity with it [RY]
