Self-Realization of Noble Wisdom
(The Lankavatara Sutra)
“What I Teach is Tathagatahood in the sense of Dharmakaya,
Ultimate One-ness, Nirvana, emptiness, unbornness, unqualifiedness, devoid
The reason why I teach the doctrine of Tathagatahood
is to cause the ignorant and simple-minded to lay aside their fears as
they listen to the teaching of egolessness and come to understand the state
of non-discrimination and imagelessness.”
