No Contention

563083_682879455056453_453709045_nThe five aggregates belong to causes and conditions.

If they belong to causes and conditions, they do not belong to me or others.

If they do not belong to me or others, they have no owner.

If they have no owner, there is no one who grasps them

If there is no grasping, there is no contention.

Non-contention is the practice of those who follow the Dharma.

Just as a hand moving in empty space

touches no object and meets no obstacles,

so the Bodhisatvas who practice the equality of emptiness

transcend the illusory world.

—Manjushri, Maharatnakuta Sutra
