“illusion and enlightenment are one road. Ignorance and knowledge are not separate. We make names for what has no name. Because we go by the names, judgments of right and wrong arise. We make rationalisations for what has no reason. Because we rely on the rationalisations, argument and discussion arise. Illusion is not real: who is right and who is wrong? The unreal is not actual: what is empty, what exists? Thus I realise that attainment gains nothing, and loss loses nothing.”
