Samādhi




一切衆生離諸惡趣


いっさいしゅしょうりしょあくしゅ

(issai shujou ri shoaku omomuki)


A samādhi on a world free from all the evil destinies.




Note: Samādhi (Sanskrit, ‘putting together’, ‘union’). Enstasis, intense concentration or absorption of consciousness in a variety of higher mental states in Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain yoga, in which distinction between subject and object is eliminated; the eighth ‘limb’ of ‘eight-limbed’ (aṣṭāṅga) or rāja yoga. Samādhi is the consequence of meditation rather than the state of meditation itself.




Doi Suthep temple, Chiang Mai



一切如來諸法本性滿淨蓮華三昧


いっさいにょらいしょほうほんしょうしょうじょうれんげざんまい

(issai nyorai sho hou honshou jou renge zanmai)


It is a Tathāgata meditation, that the fundamental nature of all existence is pure like the lotus.





Note: A lotus-samādhi 蓮華三昧 of Vairocana from which Amitābha was born.
