Samadhi

And if I get inked.


In Hindu: a state of complete control (samadhana) over the functions and distractions of consciousness.

In Bhakti: “complete absorption into the object of one’s love (Krishna).” Rather than thinking of “nothing,” true samādhi is said to be achieved only when one has pure, unmotivated love of God. Thus samādhi can be entered into through meditation on the personal form of God. Even while performing daily activities a practitioner can strive for full samādhi.

In Buddhism: also called as “concentration of the mind”, the 3rd division of the eightfold path of the Buddha’s threefold training: wisdom (pañña), conduct (sīla), concentration (samādhi) – within which it is developed by samatha meditation
