In Hinduism

Shaiva philosophy

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)

Sannikṛṣṭa (सन्निकृष्ट) (Cf. Sannikarṣa) refers to “(that which is in) close proximity”, according to the Vṛtti on the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.165.—Accordingly, “[...] And whereas that which is external to the house is next to the house (gṛha-sannikṛṣṭa), it is absolutely not the case as regards that which is [external] to consciousness, because of the impossibility for [consciousness]—which is devoid of material form—of having any spatial relation whatsoever such as proximity (sannikarṣa). Therefore this [externality] that must be established appears to be one thanks to a mere similarity”.
