The Laṅkāvatāra Sūtra is a prominent Mahayana Buddhist sūtra.

As translated by Dwight Goddard[edit]

  • Nirvana transcends all duality of knower and known, of being and non-being.
    • Chapter 1
  • Since the ignorant and simple-minded, not knowing that the world is only something seen of the mind itself, cling to the multitudinous-ness of external objects, cling to the notions of beings and non-being, oneness and otherness, both-ness and non-both-ness, existence and non-existence eternity and non-eternity, and think that they have a self-nature of their own, and all of which rises from the discriminations of the mind and is perpetuated by habit-energy, and from which they are given over to false imagination.
    • Chapter 1
