The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eleven: Maxims

7

The Founding Master said, “A person cultivating the great Way makes use of meditative absorption (samādhi) and wisdom (prajñā) together but, by establishing wisdom on the foundation of absorption, attains true wisdom. A person working on the great enterprise pursues virtue and talent together but, basing talent on virtue, makes it into true talent.”
