In Hinduism, when used as a technical term in Raja Yoga, the phrase nirvikalpa samdhi refers to a particular type of samdhi that Heinrich Zimmer distinguishes from other states as follows:
Nirvikalpa samdhi, on the other hand, absorption without self-consciousness, is a mergence of the mental activity (cittavtti) in the Self, to such a degree, or in such a way, that the distinction (vikalpa) of knower, act of knowing, and object known becomes dissolved as waves vanish in water, and as foam vanishes into the sea. The difference to the other samadhis is that there is no return from this samadhi into lower states of consciousness. Therefore this is the only true final Enlightenment.

The immersion of the mind in the Self, but without its destruction, is kevala nirvikalpa samadhi. In this state one is not free from vasanas and so one does not therefore attain mukti. Only after the vasanas have been destroyed can one attain liberation.
