09.29-30

English:

Ārtadhyān, Raudradhyān, Dharmadhyān and Shukladhyān are four types of Dhyān. The latter two can lead to liberation.

In Jain tradition meditation denotes attentiveness. Sutra 29 specifies four types of attentiveness, which are known as Ārtadhyān, Raudradhyān, Dharmadhyān and Shukladhyān. The first two are unwholesome and they do not constitute meditation. Sutra 30 therefore states that only the remaining two are purposeful in the sense that they can lead to liberation.
