When a monastic asked Majo, “What Dharma do all the Buddhas talk about?” he answered, “All the Buddhas talk about only one Dharma. Thus, the Buddha transmitted it to Mahakasyapa by with a hint. This Dharma is filling the whole universe. This cannot be understood through language and words.”
Student: “What is one Dharma?”
Master: “This cannot be understood through language and words.”
Student: “How can it be understood if not through language and words?”
Master: “‘This cannot be understood through language and words’ is also language and words.”
Language and words are not language and words unless you regard them as such.
