Āgati (आगति) refers to the “coming” (from the practice of meditation), according to the Jayottaratantra (verse 9.30-32ab) states.—Accordingly, “[The Yogin] should always withdraw the mind that is distracted by all sense objects. The mind that goes everywhere, all the time, should be regarded as Tamasic. After that, the [mind] which comes (āgati) and goes from the practice [of meditation], is known as Rajasic. The [mind] which is fixed to the sphere of the meditation object is said to be Sattvic. And after that, the absorbed [mind] is known as beyond the Guṇas, O Tapodhana”.
