The meaning and states of samadhi

In Chinese Samadhi is transliterated as "sanmei". Samadhi originally means meditative concentration, a state where that the mind and body, or the mind and the environment are one, and you no longer have scattered thoughts. But later in Mahayana and Chan, it denotes the combination of concentration and wisdom: undefiled and wise, one remains in concentration in all activities.
