Samuccheda (समुच्छेद) refers to the “destruction (of pain)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.5.5 (“The Tripuras are fascinated).—Accordingly, as Arihan said to the Lord of the Three Cities: “O ruler of the Asuras, listen to my statement, pregnant with wisdom. It is the essence of the Vedānta and bears high esoteric importance. [...] Living beings have heaven and hell here itself and not anywhere else. Happiness is heaven and misery is hell. If the body is cast off in the midst of enjoyment that is the greatest liberation conceived by the philosophers. When pain comes to an end (kleśa-samuccheda) along with its impressions, If ignorance too dies away, it is conceived as the greatest salvation by the philosophers. [...]”.
