    صآ or صآ (Vimuttisuk) - آҡش (Bliss of Freedom)
    ص (vimutti) is a Pali word, means "nirvana, freedom, liberation"
    آ - happiness

    Vimutti - Release; freedom from the fabrications and conventions of the mind.
    The suttas distinguish between two kinds of release. Discernment-release (panna-vimutti) describes the mind of the arahant, which is free of the asavas. Awareness-release (ceto-vimutti) is used to describe either the mundane suppression of the kilesas during the practice of jhana and the four brahma-viharas, or the supramundane state of concentration in the asava-free mind of the arahant.
