Setting with some continuity

The second of the nine stages of settling the mind into a state of shamatha. Here, one is able to maintain one's mental hold on the object of focus with some continuity, but only for a short time before losing it. It takes some time before one recognizes that one has lost the object and before one can reestablish one's focus.
