hindrances

And sometimes a thousand twangling instruments played around my ears...

I wonder why it is you feel an odd affection for the distractions you have had at Samatha classes?

The kind I mean are not the internal ones, but those beginners’ classes when you don’t really know anyone there, are still thinking it is rather a strange practice you are doing, cannot get your legs comfortable, but are just beginning to get settled....could it be there is something about this meditation after all? Was that a moment of mindfulness, of real quiet? And then it starts.....Very loud Boogie, badly played in the university meeting room next door....
