Asaṃjñāsamāpatti [alt. asaṃjñisamāpatti] (T. 'du shes med pa'i snyoms 'jug, འདུ་ཤེས་མེད་པའི་སྙོམས་འཇུག), or "perceptionless absorption," is a state of meditative absorption in which the six sense consciousnesses are temporarily brought to a halt, ultimately resulting in rebirth as a perceptionless god. The Abhidharma-kosa describes the absorption as a trap that is to be avoided by buddhist meditators, although it is cultivated by some non-buddhist traditions of yoga, where it is mistaken for a form of liberation.
