Hi there. I'm not sure if you're the same person as Zenmar, but I've been practicing the meditation on antecededness by breath that he describes in his book. I am now able to access the unborn light in each session. I find that that root subject-object duality is experienced as a single point of contraction in the body, felt as the sense of being a separate self. Although I'm able to access the light, I'm having trouble fully eradicating that point. I've tried all sorts of other techniques like contemplating impermanence as I'm accessing the light, letting go of the contraction, but I can't seem to make the leap. There is one guy, his name is Jhanananda, who fully transcended the contraction through this light, and he claims to be an arahant. The late Thai monk Ajahn Maha Boowa also achieved this. If you've attained jhanas through this light, through antecededness by breath, I'd love to meet on Zoom for a practice session. If you charge for such a thing, please let me know how much it'll cost. My email is I look forward to hearing from you soon.
