The absorption of cessation (Wyl. 'gog pa'i snyoms 'jug) is an advanced state of meditation in which the ordinary mind and mental events are temporarily brought to a halt.

It is known as the highest state of mundane Samadhi meditation and is cultivated by shravakas as a preliminary to Nirvana.

An uncontaminated wisdom focused single-pointedly on emptiness in dependence upon the actual absorption of peak of samsara.
