Setting with some continuity

The second one out of the nine stages of settling the mind into a state of shamatha. Here, we are able to maintain our mental hold on the object with some continuity, but only for a short time before losing it. It takes some time before we recognize that we have lost the object and before we can reestablish our focus.
