The Diamond Sutra says, “The Buddha is one who speaks true words, who speaks words that are not a lie, and who doesn’t say different words.”
Student: “The Buddha said on his deathbed that he had never said a word. What are the Buddha’s true words?”
Master: “How did he teach then?”
Don’t mistake your deafness for the Buddha’s dumbness.
