Objects in the Lankāvatāra Sutra

In your face, nihilists. This is quoted in the first book in English by an actual Zen Buddhist, D.T. Suzuki:

The saline crystal and its red-bluishness,
The milky sap and its sweetness,
Various flowers and their fruits,
The sun and the moon and their luminosity:
These are neither separable nor inseparable.


In other words, essence and appearance, or real and sensual objects.
