[JW] 1.42 Of [these balanced-states] the state-balanced with deliberation is confused by reason of predicate-relations between words and intended objects and ideas.

[SS] 1.42 The samadhi in which name, form and knowledge of them is mixed is called savitarka samadhi, or samadhi with deliberation. [p68]

[TD] 1.42 Initially, because of our past experiences and ideas, our understanding of the object is distorted. Everything that has been heard, read, or felt may interfere with our perception. [p162]

[EB] 1.42 In this stage, savitarka-samapattih, "samadhi absorption with physical awareness," is intermixed with the notions of word, meaning, and idea. [p144]
