DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good LED light to use for kasina practice?

I have been using a 10-inch beeswax candle placed on a 12-inch holder, placed about 3-4 feet in front of me. I've tried a few different LEDs (iPhone light, LED tea candle, etc), but I haven't found anything that I like as well as the candle. 

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I used these little keychain LED lights and was happy with them. I mostly just used them when reclining or walking--a quick flash on was all it took to get an afterimage because they're quite bright. Otherwise, a taper beeswax candle was my preference.

Thanks! I'll give them a try. I love the candle flame and the interesting things that show up with it, but I need something to use on a retreat that doesn't have the potential of burning the entire place to the ground!

Thanks again!

Yeah, burning down the building would definitely be a bummer. Have a great retreat!
