AN.IV.38 Pa.tiliina Sutta A monk who delights in seclusion can be of four different types:
1. one who has relinquished false view of individuality [sakkaaya di.t.thi] -- who does not concern himself with questions unanswerable by conceptual thought; 2. one who is no longer seeking -- i.e. is no longer longing for the sense realm, brahma-realm or becoming; 3. one who has calmed his mental formations [sa"nkaara] -- overcoming pleasure and displeasure he enters upon equanimity of the fourth absorption [jhaana], and; 4. one who delights in seclusion (proper) -- casting off the concept of "I am".
