Limb 8 – Deep Absorption

Samadhi (deep absorption) 

Samadhi is a superconscious state; the climax of meditation in which the aspirant experiences unity with cosmic consciousness.

It is attention itself, which is progressively moving inward through the states of dharana, dhyana and samdhi:

  • Attention leads to concentration (dharana)
  • Concentration leads to meditation (dhyana)
  • Meditation leads to absorption (samadhi)The eight limbs of yoga are concerned with our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing and our relationship with other creatures and the environment around us.
