No obtaining, no expounding
 



“Subhūti, what do you think? Has the Tathāgata obtained Anuttarā Samyaksaṃbodhi (Unsurpassed, Proper and Equal, Right Enlightenment )? Is there any dharma the Tathāgata has spoken?” Subhūti replied, “Thus do I explain the true meaning of the Buddha’s teachings: there is no fixed dharma of Anuttarā Samyaksaṃbodhi, nor is there a fixed dharma the Tathāgata can speak. Why? The Tathāgata’s exposition of the Dharma can never be grasped or spoken, being neither dharma nor non-dharma. What is it, then? All the noble ones are distinguished by the unconditioned Dharma.
