Savikalpa Samadhi.It is seen in red color when you meditate in lighted room.
Savikalpa samadhi is an exalted and glowing state of consciousness, whereas realization is a conscious, natural and manifesting state of consciousness. When realization dawns, the seeker enjoys freedom from the human personality and human individuality. He is like a tiny drop of water which enters into the ocean. Once it enters, it becomes the ocean. Samadhi is a spiritual state of consciousness. There are various kinds of samadhi. Among the minor samadhis, savikalpa samadhi happens to be the highest. Beyond savikalpa comes nirvikalpa samadhi, but there is a great gulf between these two: they are two radically different samadhis. Again, there is something even beyond nirvikalpa samadhi called sahaja samadhi.
In savikalpa samadhi, for a short period of time you lose all human consciousness. In this state the conception of time and space is altogether different. For an hour or two hours you are completely in another world. You see there that almost everything is done. Here in this world there are many desires still unfulfilled in yourself and in others. Millions of desires are not fulfilled, and millions of things remain to be done. But when you are in savikalpa samadhi, you see that practically everything is done; you have nothing to do. You are only an instrument. If you are used, well and good; otherwise, things are all done. But from savikalpa samadhi everybody has to return to ordinary consciousness.
Even in savikalpa samadhi there are grades. Just as there are brilliant students and poor students in the same class in school, so also in savikalpa samadhi some aspirants reach the highest grade, while less aspiring seekers reach a lower rung of the ladder, where everything is not so clear and vivid as on the highest level.
Kabir — ‘All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.’
What is the difference between samadhi and God-realization or Self-realization?
There is no comparison between samadhi and realization. Samadhi is a state of consciousness in which one can stay for a few hours or a few days. But once one has achieved realization, it lasts forever.
Sahaja samadhi is by far the highest type of samadhi. In this samadhi one is in the highest consciousness, but at the same time he is working in the gross physical world. One maintains the experience of nirvikalpa samadhi while simultaneously entering into earthly activities.
When we enter into nirvikalpa samadhi, the first thing we feel is that our heart is larger than the universe itself. When we are in nirvikalpa samadhi, we see the universe like a tiny dot inside our vast heart.In nirvikalpa samadhi there is infinite bliss. There is nothing in comparison to the quantity, not to speak of the quality, of that bliss.The last thing we feel in nirvikalpa samadhi is power. All the power that all the occultists have put together is nothing compared with the power we have in nirvikalpa samadhi. But the power that we can take from samadhi to utilize on earth is infinitesimal compared with the entirety. All this I am expressing through the mind; it is not exact. But it cannot be expressed with words.
On the attainment of the absolute and transcendent Nirvikalpa Samadhi can none return to the world of duality through the consciousness ?Avataras alone can descend to the ordinary plane from that state of Samadhi, for the good of the world. Ordinary Jivas do not; immersed in that state, they remain alive for a period of twenty — one days; after that, their body drops like a sere leaf from the tree of Samsara (world).
Yogi is freed while living and has full control over death. Mahasamadhi is a yogi’s conscious decision to leave the body. This conscious decision to leave the body can be only attained by a yogi who has attained God Realisation or Moksha or Self Realization. Mahasamadhi can also often refer to the shrine where a great yogi has been buried, usually close to where he entered his final state of mahasamadhi.
