Subsequent attainment

A state of mind having the joined pair of shamatha and vipashyana, and in which absorbed concentration is focused single-pointedly on a voidness that is like an illusion. It is attained only upon rising from total absorption on space-like voidness and may occur either while still in meditation or after arising from meditation. It may be either conceptual or nonconceptual.

Tibetan: rjes-thob

J. Hopkins: State subsequent to meditative equipoise, attainment subsequent [to meditative equipoise].
