Samadhi - an essential subject
Samadhi describes a state of trance, ecstasy and spiritual realization. People who have reached this state are known to have understood God (Lord Krishna) and have thus cut all their ties and attachment from this material world. Hence, samadhi means to be absorbed fully in Kṛṣṇa consciousness; attachment to our Supreme father and detachment from everything else. A person in this state always chants the names of the Lord, and very much relishes this activity. Reaching samadhi is thus higher than the platform one reaches after completing various forms of yoga.
