Layman Pang said, “The core of the Diamond Sutra is to cut all illusions. From the very first word to the last, all of them are just the way false names are arranged.”
Student: “If from the very first word to the last in the Diamond Sutra, all of them are just the way false names are arranged, why did the Buddha say such false names?”
Master: “They are not the words the Buddha said.”
The words that can be dictated are not the Buddha’s words.
