nameless names

July 8, 2010

One who gives rise to the awakened mind should know that what is called a self or person, a living being or a life span, is not so in essence but only in concept. That self, person, living being, or life span are names only. You should know that all things of the world are like this, and you should have confidence in their essence without names.
