English translation:Reaching Samadhi (a state of being completely focused)
Explanation:
三摩地: samadhi (Sanskrit loanword), a state of being completely focused or concentrated. Also exists as variant form "三昧".
http://www.cantonese.sheik.co.uk/dictionary/words/11116/

You may also add the explanation for samadhi in the footnote.

Therefore, "Reaching Samadhi" means "the attanment of a higher state of consciousness where a complete merging or union is felt with the source of life. It is also the ultimate goal of yoga.
