What do you think of this Chinese Madhyamaka commentator, Shèng Zhào (聖照) regarding the mind of the Buddha:[quote]Objection: Though the mind of the sage is without knowing, it does not err in its path of responding to situations. Therefore, it responds to what should be responded to, and leaves alone what should not be responded to. Consequently, the mind of the sage sometimes arises and sometimes ceases. How can this be?
Reply: “Arising and ceasing” is the arising and ceasing of mind. As the sage has no mind, how can arising and ceasing occur therein? Thus it is not that there is no mind, but only that his mind is without mind. Also, it is not that he does not respond, but only that his response is without response.[/quote](般若無知論, Prajñāsaṃjñāśastra, ~400 AD)
This is interesting, but is also a Madhyamaka commentator. Is this talked about in EBTs?
