Skillful means of a Buddha

No photo description available.

Just as the grammarian makes one study grammar,
A Buddha teaches according to the tolerance of his students;
Some he urges to refrain from sins, others to do good,
Some to rely on dualism, other on non-dualism;
And to some, he teaches the profound,
The terrifying, the practice of enlightenment,
Whose essence is emptiness that is compassion.

– Nagarjuna

quoted in the book “The Embodied Mind: Cognitive Science and Human Experience”
