In this question The Seven Factors of Enlightenment shown, Tranquility, Concentration, Equanimity, Investigation of dhammas, Effort and Rapture as specific phases in the path of enlightenment (also in a linear progression), and how to apply them. Also here.
The seven levels of consciousness which make up the path of spiritual development, shown in TM as:
- the state of waking consciousness;
- deep sleep;
- transcendental consciousness;
- cosmic consciousness;
- god consciousness; unity consciousness.
Are these steps equally valued in the Buddhist path?
