Against such a view, I found this passage, posted below, from the Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra. It can be read to mean that while there seems to be innumerable illusions, there is something non-illusory, namely, the true self.
“Kashyapa, this is the true-self , such a self exists, since the very beginning but hidden under innumerable illusions. This is why foolish men cannot see it.”
“Form is like a lump of foam, feeling like a water bubble; perception is like a mirage; volitions like a plantain trunk, and consciousness like an illusion, so explained the Kinsman of the Sun” (S .iii. 142).
“This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self (na me so atta).”
