A Sanskrit word meaning “cessation,” “stopping.” It is used in some schools of Buddhism and in Rāja Yoga to refer to the mastery over the senses such that there is no longer any risk of a return to the condition where the senses dominate consciousness. It is also the quality or virtue necessary for an aspirant to be qualified for advanced spiritual practices.
