无得无说分第七 

NOTHING ATTAINED, NOTHING SPOKEN, SEVEN 

“Subhuti, what do you think? 

须菩提!于意云何? 

“Has the Tathagata(in fact) obtained Supreme Enlightenment (Anubodhi)? 

如来得阿耨多罗三藐三菩提耶? 

“Does the Tathagata (in fact) expound the Dharma?” 

如来有所说法耶? 

Subhuti replied: 

须菩提言: 

“As I understand the meaning of the Buddha's teaching, 

如我解佛所说义, 

“there is no fixed Dharma called Supreme Enlightenment and there is also no fixed Dharma the Tathagata can expound. 

无有定法名阿耨多罗三藐三菩提,亦无有定法,如来可说。 

“Why? 

何以故? 

“(Because) the Dharma the Tathagata expounds cannot be clung to and cannot be expressed (in words); it is neither Dharma nor Not-Dharma. 

如来所说法,皆不可取、不可说、非法、非非法。 

“Why is this? 

所以者何? 

“All Bhadras and Aryas differ on account of the Eternal Asamskrta Dharma.” 

一切贤圣,皆以无为法而有差别。
