I am not disputing that. But I don't see the point of your trying to show
j~nAna (or did you mean mokSha?) is available by "samAdhi" as this directly
contradicts the "One becomes immortal by *knowing* Him alone" of the vedas.
samAdhi is an action and all actions have nothing whatsoever to do with
j~nAna which of the nature of knowledge.
