Ajaan Maha Boowa and Bhagavan's Self enquiry - 7

Reinhard Jung continues....

Ajaan Maha Boowa took another step when he proceeded with the
investigation of the mind itself and its different components.

The work is mentally very exhausting.  Wisdom goes relentlessly
through every aspect of mental activity.  It works non stop day
and night.

As we investiage the Citta thoroughly, stage by stage, the defiling elements that previously roamed about will converge into a single
radiant point, merging with the natural radiance inside the Citta.
This radiance is so majestic, and mesmerizing that even exceptional mental faculties like supreme-mindfulness and supreme-wisdom will
invariably fall under its spell a first.  It is a completely novel experience, never before encountered.  It amazes and appears so
extraordinary, so majestic, and awe-inspiring, that it sees nothing
could possibly compare with it at that moment.

And why shouldn't it be?  It has been an absolute monarch ruling
over the three worlds of existence for countless eons.

Although the meditator is often deceived, especially as the mind becomes more fine and is lost to believe that each new state is the final goal, a competent teacher will ask him to be aware of clinging to that beauty and tell he meditator to look more closely and see that this state is still changing in a subtle way.  It is at this point the
invaluable tool of Vichara becomes effective.
