The Buddhas and all sentient beings are only the One Mind—there are no other dharmas. Since beginningless time, this mind has never been generated and has never been extinguished, is neither blue nor yellow, is without shape and without characteristics, does not belong to being and nonbeing, does not consider new or old, is neither long nor short, and is neither large nor small. It transcends all limitations, names, traces, and correlations. It is itself—that's it! To activate thoughts is to go against it! It is like space, which is boundless and immeasurable.

Huang Po (857)
