This first one is from page 9 of Cleary's, where a Bodhisattva muses:
"At that time, I thought to myself, 'The appearance of a Buddha
in the world is most wonderful; because of the Buddha's
appearance in the world, it is possible to understand and realize
Ultimate Truth the ultimate truth that is beyond the scope of all thought and
The Buddha said, "It is so. It is as you say. I have awakened
to the ultimate truth, which is beyond all thought and reflection.
And I explain it to others, revealing and analyzing it, defining
and elucidating it.
Why? The ultimate truth of which I speak is that
which is inwardly realized by sages, while the scope
of thought and deliberation is what unenlightened people testify
to among themselves. Therefore, you should know that ultimate
truth transcends all objects of thought and deliberation.
"The ultimate truth of which I speak has no form to which
to relate, whereas thought and deliberation operate only in the
sphere of form. Based on this principle, you should know that
ultimate truth transcends all objects of thought and deliberation.
