Anupubba-nirodha: The 9 'successive ceasings', are the 8 ceasings reached through the 8 absorptions Jhanas and the ceasing of feeling and perception' see: nirodha-samāpatti, as it is said in A. IX, 31 and D. 33:

In him who has entered the 1st absorption, the sensual-perception kāma-saññā are extinguished. Having entered the 2nd absorption, thought-conception and discursive thinking vitakka-vicāra are extinguished. Having entered the 3rd absorption, joy pīti is extinguished. Having entered the 4th absorption, in-and-out breathing assāsa-passāsa are extinguished. Having entered the sphere of Infinite space ākāsānañcāyatana, the perception of forms rūpa-saññā are extinguished. Having entered the sphere of Infinite consciousness viññānañcāyatana, the perception of the sphere of Infinite space is extinguished. Having entered the sphere of nothingness ākiñcaññāyatana, the perception of the sphere of Infinite consciousness is extinguished. Having entered the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-perception neva-saññā-nāsaññāyatana the perception of the sphere of nothingness is extinguished. Having entered the ceasing of perception and feeling saññā-vedayita-nirodha perception and feeling are extinguished.
