Best Light for Fire Kasina
I love candles and other natural flames for practice, however I didn't love having to continually buy candles or fuel. I heard of a few people using LEDs for their practice. I tried using my phone's flash and found that way too bright, also I wanted a smaller point light.
The faux candle I found works great, especially after I ripped off the silicone "flame" tip that wobbles around. With the tip removed I can stare directly at the bright but not blinding LED and get a great after image. The brightness, smallness, and consistency of the LED makes for a great target.
