The absorption of cessation (Tib. འགོག་པའི་སྙོམས་འཇུག, gokpé nyom juk, 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.
