How to gain the Divine Hearing Element?



The Blessed Buddha once said:
When a Bhikkhu develops the The Feet of Force, that is enriched with concentrated desire,
concentrated energy, concentrated thought & concentrated investigation, all constructed
by effort, by thinking:  In this way will my desire, energy, thinking and investigating neither
be too slack, nor too tense, it will neither be constricted internally, nor scattered externally,
then he dwells experiencing both what is in front & what is behind, so above, so also below,
so by day, so also  at night! Therefore, with a mind that is all open & unrestricted, he develops
the dazzling bright mind, which is pervaded by its own luminosity...
When the 4 feet of suprahuman force have been developed, refined and cultivated in exactly
this way, then the Bhikkhu possesses the various kinds of suprahuman force: With the divine
ear element, which is purified and surpasses the human, he hears both divine and human sounds,
both those that are far away, as well as those that are near.
