Savikalpa samādhi (Sanskrit: सविकल्पसमाधि) is a state of samādhi in which one's consciousness temporarily dissolves into Brahman.
In this state, one lets go of the ego and becomes aware of Spirit
beyond creation. The soul is then able to absorb the fire of
Spirit-Wisdom that "roasts" or destroys the seeds of body-bound
inclinations. The soul as the meditator, its state of meditation, and
the Spirit as the object of meditation all become one. The separate wave
of the soul meditating in the ocean of Spirit becomes merged with the
Spirit. The soul does not lose its identity, but only expands into
Spirit. In savikalpa samadhi the mind is conscious only of the Spirit
within; it is not conscious of the exterior world. The body is in a
trancelike state, but the consciousness is fully perceptive of its
blissful experience within.
Beyond the state of savikalpa are the more immersive and lasting samadhi states of nirvikalpa and sahaja.
