Often there appears to be significant confusion about the terms used in "advita" and "Yoga" that have same and/or similar meaning.
Could you please share your thoughts on the terms "nirvikalpa", "savikalpa" and "sabiija" samaadhi !

In fact, an undue emphasis on Yoga, with its accompanying notion that a
nirvikalpa samAdhi experience ratifies the vedAntic truth, goes hand in hand
with much more modern constructions of vedAnta, from the 19th century
