Teachings of Nagarjuna

The Buddha taught some people the teachings of duality that help them avoid sin and acquire spiritual merit.

To others he taught non-duality, that some find profoundly frightening.

Even offering three hundred bowls of food three times a day does not match the spiritual merit gained in one moment of love.

All philosophies are mental fabrications.

There has never been a single doctrine by which one could enter the true essence of things.

~ Nagarjuna (150 - 250 CE)
