samaṣṭi (समष्टि).—f S Comprehended or comprised state; the state of being gathered up into and of consubsisting with. samaṣṭi is contrad. from vyaṣṭi; e.g. in the Deity, viewed as the one eternal substance of which the universe is only the ramification or diversified representation, is samaṣṭi Inclusion of all things; whilst in Man (and in any other animal or in any inanimate thing), viewed as consisting of the substance of the one Substance and Soul of the universe, and as co-serving together with all the other animals and things (all these diversified existencies being but diversified exhibitions of the Deity) to compose and constitute this Substance, is vyaṣṭi Inherence severally and pervasively. Man at this same time, or any other animal or any thing, viewed as expressing the comprehension of the members, parts, or particulars composing him or it, is an example of samaṣṭi. Briefly--in every totality or whole viewed as the sum of its parts is an example of samaṣṭi; and in every part viewed as co-serving to constitute a whole is an example of vyaṣṭi. See further under vyaṣṭi. Ex. from vivēkasindhu--īśvarōpādhi samaṣṭi jīvōpādhi vyaṣṭi.
