“How then does the bodhisattva enter the gate of nondualism?”
“To my way of thinking, all dharmas are without words, without explanations, without purport, without cognition, removed from all questions and answers. In this way one may enter the gate of nondualism.”
Then Manjushri said to Vimalakirti, “Each of us has given an explanation. Now, sir, it is your turn to speak. How does the bodhisattva enter the gate of nondualism?”
At that time Vimalakirti remained silent and did not speak a word.
Manjushri sighed and said, “Excellent, excellent! Not a word, not a syllable – this truly is to enter the gate of nondualism!”
