Angulimala Sutra, Vol. 2

Quotes from Angulimala Sutra, Vol. 2


“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.”
