Pratyutpannasamādhi (प्रत्युत्पन्नसमाधि).—In the (Pratyutpannasūtra = Pratyutpannabuddha-saṃmukhāvasthitasamādhisūtra (‘Sūtra of the concentration during which the Buddhas of the present are face-to-face’), it is said: “By the power of the Pratyutpannasamādhi, the ascetic, even without having acquired the divyacakṣus, is able to see all the Buddhas of the present in the ten directions”.
Also, “the pratyutpannasamādhi is obtained by a person freed of desire (vītarāga) as well as by a person not freed of desire (avitarāga), whereas the divyacakṣus is obtained only by someone freed of desire. The pratyutpannasamādhi is a vision resulting from constant meditation, the constant practice of subjective conceptualizing (saṃkalpa)”.
