Closely setting

The fourth of the nine stages of settling the mind into a state of shamatha. Here, one does not lose one's mental hold on the object, but because the subtle mental flightiness of an undercurrent of thought and middling dullness are strong dangers and can still occur, one needs to maintain their opponents very strongly.

Tibetan: ཉེ་བར་འཇོག་པ། nye-bar 'jog-pa
