Samadhi is the eighth limb as described by Maharishi Patanjali in the "Yoga Sutras."
In short, Samadhi is a deep state of meditative absorption. There are different types of Samadhi, but it is always a state of complete concentration.
Samadhi is the ability to control functions of the mind and body, while eliminating life's daily distractions from the goal of pure consciousness.
About the need for Samadhi: Some people never become aware of anything. They are not conscious of their actions, words, or thoughts. Unfortunately, they do not feel a need to find a state of ultimate bliss or spiritual enlightenment.
However, someone who is on a spiritual quest will find joy, peace, and meditative union, with God, once Samadhi is attained. Samadhi is a universal principle and ds not require you to be a specific religion to attain complete meditative absorption.
