A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:

ABOUT EMPTINESS (SUNYATA)
Like using water to quench fire burning, The emptiness of dharmas has been talked about by wise men, In order to help people to stop raising views and holding on them, To get themselves liberated and free. If one now raises his views of emptiness and holding on them, then he cannot be helped, because he entirely misunderstood of it, Unless, he himself must empty his views of emptiness first.
