atma-anubhavam — Self-Realization which is the result of the practice of abstract meditation on the Formless Absolute (Brahman). This spiritual practice which is taught in Advaita Vedanta and in the Patanjali Yoga Sutras leads one to experience a unique state of cosmic awareness, of total isolation and freedom called kaivalya. Only a few very exceptional mystics have ever attained this state of Self-realisation. It is not recommended as a goal for average people, who are incapable of developing the discipline of non-attachment (vairagya) which is a prerequisite for the practice of this type of meditation.
