101. It is said that for the wise, one word is enough. For Mahakashyapa, the Buddha's silent presentation of a flower was enough. For the rest of us, however, we demand lengthy explanations of what constitutes the True Dharma Eye, not to mention doctrinal formulations concerning the Marvelous Mind of Nirvana. We also engage in endless philosophical investigations into the True Form of the Formless and the Subtle Dharma Gate. Yet sooner or later we must come to the recognition that what the Buddha has to transmit is independent of words and way beyond doctrine.
