One of the synonyms for the meditative state. The Tibetan translators interpreted it as sama-āpatti, which brings in the idea of “equal” or “level”; however, it can also be parsed as sam-āpatti, in which case it would have the sense of “concentration” or “absorption,” much like samādhi, but with the added sense of “attainment.”
