For all who are familiar with Nagarjuna’s eight negations (or four pairs of negations): namely,
neither birth nor death,
neither end nor permanence,
neither identity nor difference, and
neither coming nor going.
I remember reading in an article once that these were directly traceable to some passage in the Nikayas/Agamas: it was actually quite specific–i.e., not just that the general theme was traceable. As I remember, I even saw the sutta citation.
Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you.
