samadhi
relative

A term for the fact that all things are empty of any inherent, independent, enduring self-nature, and are actually just integral parts of one, seamless, luminous whole. Contrasted with the relative truth that, at the same time, countless phenomena exist, interact, and have unique characteristics. Absolute and relative compromise the “two truths” teaching of Mahayana Buddhism.
