Sāṃsiddhika (सांसिद्धिक) refers to that which is “spontaneously enlightened”, according to the Tantrāloka.—[Abhinavagupta’s interpretation of the line—“gurutaḥ śāstrataḥ svataḥ”] is inspired by the intention to establish that in a few rare cases, it is possible that the same liberating insight (called “sound reasoning”—sat-tarka—in the following passage), which comes from the teacher and scripture by means of initiation, develops spontaneously by itself (svata). Those who become teachers in this way are, according to Abhinava, “unformed” (akalpita) and “spontaneously enlightened” (sāṃsiddhika).
