The contemplation of subtle aspects is similarly explained as deliberate (savicara samapatti) or non-deliberate (nirvicara samapatti).
Transformation of the consciousness by contemplation on subtle objects like the ego (ahamkara), intelligence (buddhi) or the equivalent of the elements (sound, touch, sight, taste and smell), or the qualities of luminosity, vibrancy and dormancy of nature, conditioned by space, time and causation, is savicara samapatti. Without these reflections it becomes nirvicara samapatti.
In nirvicara samapatti, the sadhaka experiences a state without verbal deliberation. All the subtle objects reflected in savicara are eliminated. He is free from memory, free from past experiences, devoid of all past impressions. This new state of contemplation is without cause and effect, place or time. The inexpressible states of pure bliss (ananda) and pure self (sasmita) rise to the surface and are experienced by the sadhaka.
