Q&A: What should one do when Piti arises?
Piti is a very specific joy associated with a state of deep tranquillity. It is often translated with the English words “joy” or “rapture” and is distinguished from the longer-lasting meditative “pleasure” or “happiness” (Pali, Sanrkit: sukha) that arises along with piti. Master Culadasa discusses how it arises and what to do when it does.
