Serenity is the coming to rest of all ways of taking things, the repose of named things: no truth has been taught by a Buddha for anyone, anywhere.

We are not saved by discovering any linguistic truth, for there is no such liberating truth to identify with.

This demotes all Buddhist categories to "skillful means," pointers that may be helpful but not if we take the finger for the moon.

--- David R. Loy, whose quoting of Nagarjuna formed the title
