Śliṣṭa (श्लिष्ट) refers to the “absorbed” (mind), according to Hemacandra’s commentary (the Svopajña) on Yogaśāstra 12.4 (Cf. Amanaska 2.97).—Accordingly, [while explaining the integrated and absorbed states of mind]: “The integrated [mind] is said to be steady and accompanied by bliss, [that is to say,] it is accompanied by bliss because it is steady. The absorbed (śliṣṭa) [mind] is completely still and immersed in supreme bliss. These two [states of] mind apprehend just those, [which are] merely mental, and not external”.
