1 Definition(s) from various sources:

'liable to perturbation', is one who has not yet attained full mastery over the absorptions.

In Pug. 3 it is said:

"What person is liable to perturbation? Such a person gains the attainments of the fine-material and immaterial sphere (s. avacara). But he does not gain them at his wish, nor without toil and exertion; and not at his wish as regards place, object and duration, does he enter them or arise from them. Thus it is well possible that in case of such a person, through negligence, the attainments will become perturbed. This person is liable to perturbation."
