  德顶菩萨曰:“垢、净为二。见垢实性, 则无净相, 顺于灭相。是为入不二法门。”

  《维摩诘所说经》卷2

  Bodhisattva srīkūta [Highest Virtue] said: “Defilementand purity are a duality. Seeing the real nature ofdefilement, one finds no purity appearance and then

  conforms to tranquility appearance, which is calledentering the dharma-gate of non-duality.”

  Vimalakirti Nirdesa Sutra, Vol. 2

  由于垢、净都属于如来藏,但是从如来藏自身都不分别垢净的自性来看一切法,祂并没有垢与净可说,垢、净都是意识心的施设与建立。假使弄清楚了垢净二法的实性都是无垢净的如来藏中的法,那就没有清净相与污垢相可说了,永离垢净两边,就能随顺于寂灭相,这就是入不二法门。

  《维摩诘经讲记》第五辑,页69-70

  Both defilement and purity belong to theTathagatagarbha; however, Tathagatagarbha itselfnever discriminates between defilement and purity.Observing all dharmas from this intrinsic nature ofTathagatagarbha, one will find it is neither defiled norpure, and both defilement and purity are just nominallyestablished by the conscious mind. If one understandsthat the real nature of both defilement and purity isdharmas in Tathagatagarbha which is neither defilednor pure, he will find there is no defilement or purityappearance to say; he will forever stay away fromeither defilement or purity and thus be able to conformo the tranquility appearance, which is called enteringthe dharma-gate of non-duality.
