The Seeded Samadhis of Patanjala #279
There is one ultimate samadhi in spiritual life, whether called Nirvikalpa, Nirvana, Satori, or Yoga’s “seedless” samadhi, Asamprajnata. Thanks to Patanjali, however, a well-enumerated and fleshed-out list of lower samadhis, called Samprajnata in Yoga, or “seeded” samadhis, has been offered. Thus, the advanced practitioner is able to cognize and pinpoint various states of awareness as they come upon him/her in the process of spiritual practice. This wisdom chart places all this in perspective, replete with important details found in the Yoga sutras.
