Yoga sutras of Patanjali 1.51

Standard

When even this impression is wiped out, every impression is totally wiped out and there is nirbija (seedless) samadhi.

When even these latent impressions from truth filled knowledge recede along with the other impressions, then there is objectless concentration.

This is the highest samadhi – objectless concentration. This reminds me of the stress on the ’emptiness’ in the Zen Buddhist heart sutra.
