48. A student asked about the samādhi and prajñā of the self-nature and the relative samādhi and prajñā that adapt to signs. The Master replied, “Having no sign of samādhi when encountering sensory conditions is the samādhi of the self-nature; having no sign of prajñā when projecting light is the prajñā of the self-nature. Having signs of samādhi even when cultivating samādhi is the samādhi that adapts to signs; having signs of prajñā even when cultivating prajñā is the prajñā that adapts to signs.”
