samadhi

Deep meditation. State of profound mental absorption.

Sameness; evenness, contemplation; union, wholeness; completion, accomplishment.”

Samadhi is the state of true yoga, in which the meditator and the object of meditation are one. Samadhi is of two levels.

  1. The first is savikalpasamadhi (enstasy with form), identification or oneness with the essence of an object. Its highest form is the realization of the primalsubstratum or pure consciousness, Satchidananda.
  2. The second is nirvikalpa samadhi (“ecstasy without form or seed”), identification with formless bliss, in which all modes of consciousness are transcended. This brings in its aftermath a complete transformation of consciousness.
