~Savikalpa~

Savikalpa is a Sanskrit term meaning “differentiated” or “optional.” It can be used to express ideas that are varied or to distinguish types.

In Hindu and yogic philosophy, savikalpa is most commonly used to distinguish a particular type of samadhi. Savikalpa samadhi is one of several levels, or stages, of samadhi, which is a state of bliss or complete concentration obtained when the yogi has realized the nature of his/her Higher Self. Savikalpa samadhi is sometimes described as the state in which the yogi’s consciousness temporarily dissolves into Brahman. Depending on the yogic tradition, savikalpa is either the second or third highest level of samadhi.
