Jhãna Absorption eliminates all Physical Pain!

The Blessed Buddha once pointed out:
Where does all bodily pain cease, without any even trace remaining?
Aloof of all sense-desire and secluded from any disadvantageous state,
one enters and remains in the first
jhāna absorption of directed thought
and sustained thinking, joined with pleasure and joy, born of sole isolation.
It is right there, that all bodily pain ceases without a trace remaining...

Therefore do beings reborn at the fine-material
brahma level, never feel
any physical pain, since they are continuously absorbed in this first

Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
