There is a self, that there is no self, and that there is neither a self nor the absence of a self

The buddhas teach that there is a self, that there is no self, and that there is neither a self nor the absence of a self.

-Nagarjuna

The flower’s perfume has no form, but it pervades space. Likewise, through a spiral of mandalas formless reality is known. -Saraha
