Beyond Extremes

budaestatua“Samsara and nirvana

are neither identical nor different”,

first refutes identity:

ultimate reality is established;

provisional reality is not.

Precisely because identity is denied,

there can be no difference.

There are not two established truths.

Only the one is real, the other false.

There being no other,

how could there be difference?
