Angulimala Sutra, Vol. 2

Quotes from Angulimala Sutra

 

“Employing the analogies of empty settlements, depleted rivers, and waterless bottles, we can say that the so-called emptiness is empty because it lacks contents, not because there exist no containers (holders). The Tathagata denotes true liberation, and so does the notion of “non-empty”; it is called the emptiness of liberation because it denotes transcending all faults. The Tathagata is truly non-empty but devoid of all afflictions, celestial beings, and aggregates; thus, it is called the notion of emptiness.”

 

《央掘魔羅經》 卷2

 

「譬如空聚落,川竭瓶無水,非無彼諸器,中虛故名空;如來真解脫,不空亦如是,出離一切過,故說解脫空。如來實不空,離一切煩惱,及諸天人陰,是故說名空。」
