An excerpt:

Quote:
So the god-son Silent Taming Tone asked Mañjuśrī, “Why do you enjoy expounding the Dharma in Treasure Appearance Buddha’s land?”
Mañjuśrī answered, “God-Son, [the sentient beings] there neither invoke nor eradicate greed, neither invoke nor eradicate anger, neither invoke nor eradicate delusion, neither invoke nor eradicate vexation. Why? Because dharmas with no birth have no death.”
The god-son marveled, “Mañjuśrī, the sentient beings in that land neither invoke greed, anger, or delusion, nor eradicate them?”
Mañjuśrī answered, “They do neither, God-Son.”
The god-son next asked, “What Dharma does that Buddha pronounce?”
“He pronounces that dharmas have neither birth nor death. Why? Because the Buddha in that land teaches neither eradication [of afflictions] nor realization [of the truth]. The sentient beings there value the highest truth, not worldly truth.”
