Best Answer

It is a term coined in 1969 by Mircea Eliade to contrast the Eastern view of bliss as "standing inside oneself" (enstasy) with the Western view as ecstasy, "standing outside oneself." A word chosen as the English equivalent of samadhi.

For more detail you can search: ecstasy, samadhi, raja yoga.
