In the process of reading a book, we need only the mind and the eyes. There is no need of ears and tongue.
In the process of hearing Dhamma,there may no need of eyes.
Are there any meditation practice to ignore senses completely for a period of time ?
(I'm looking for a specific meditation practice designed to achieve this, I know that we can achieve a similar result by doing Ānāpāna/breathing exercises,but may take much time )
