Hui-Neng

‘You may want to say it is real, yet no defining characteristic can be found; you may want to say it is unreal, yet it functions without interruption. Therefore it cannot be said not to exist, yet cannot be said to exist. It can be nothing, yet it is not nothing; no words or metaphors can reach it – does is not describe true wisdom alone?’ (Commentary on the Diamond Sutra)
