Samāveśa (समावेश) refers to the “three kinds of penetration” (of the supreme principle) according to Abhinava’s Tantrāloka verse 1.167-170.—Abhinava presents [the triad—Śāmbhava, Śākta and Āṇava] as the three basic categories into which all the practices taught in the Tantras (and by extension all religions) can be classified. To be exact, according to the Mālinīvijayottaratantra, these three terms denote three kinds of penetration (samāveśa) of the supreme principle and its energy into the adept's consciousness. [...] Abhinava  says, while quoting his Mālinīvijayottaratantra (verse 2.21-23): “The three (ways in which impurity is eradicated) was taught by the Supreme Lord in the Mālinīvijayottaratantra in the course of explaining (the forms) of penetration (into the supreme state) (samāveśa)”.

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions

Samāveśa (समावेश) refers to a form of “liberation”, according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvimarśinī III.2.12.—Accordingly, “This twofold state of one who is liberated while living is called samāveśa in the scriptures. For complete entering is itself primary in each of these; other teachings are [only] for its attainment”.

Note: What Abhinava wants us to understand, [probably], is that when the scriptures use the term samāveśa (from ā√viś, to penetrate), they are always referring to one of these two states. In turya, then, one fully and directly penetrates into one’s true nature, while in turyātīta, one causes that nature to fully and gradually penetrate the objective levels of one’s limited self-hood; for this reason they can both be appropriately referred to with the word samāveśa (from ā√viś, to penetrate). [...] It is only meaningful to speak of samāveśa in the context of embodiment, for only in that context are there apparently differentiated layers of self-hood such that there can be an “entry” of the locus of identity (ahaṃ-bhāva) from the body, etc., into cit, or an “entry” of cit into one of the layers of limited self-hood (dehādi)—the former entry being turya and the latter turyātīta.

Samāveśa (समावेश) refers to “immersion (in the highest abode)”, according to the Netratantroddyota commentary on the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 4.10]—“[...] He teaches that after the [Mantrin has] first, correctly understood this expansive [rite] from the Svacchanda Tantra, [and other texts], he should put it into practice. The eye of Śiva is greater than all. It bestows on those rich in devotion, immersion in the highest abode (paradhāman-samāveśa-prada), [and he] burns away of all the massive bonds”.

Samāveśa (समावेश) refers to “immersion” (in the fourth state and beyond), according to Kṣemarāja’s Pratyabhijñāhṛdaya.—Accordingly, while discussing easy methods of Yoga practice: “[...] By apprehending the absence of thought because there is no thinking at all, one becomes full of the perception of a knowing subject's own consciousness devoid of defects such as the body and so on, and one soon obtains immersion (samāveśa) in the fourth [state] and that beyond the fourth [state], [an immersion] whose expansiveness is [always] opening out”.
