Sometimes transliterated as: Sattvapatti, SattvApatti, Sattvaapatti

Sattvāpatti literally means attaining sattva.

This is the state of being established, though indirectly, in the ātman,[1] who is sattva.[2] This is attained as a result of practicing the earlier three stages.


  1. Ātman means the individual Self.
  2. Sattva means the pure, the real.
