Life and death are important. Don't suffer them in vain.
If your mind is pure, all buddha-lands are pure.
The ultimate Truth is beyond words. Doctrines are words. They're not the Way.
Those who worship don't know, and those who know don't worship.
All the suffering and joy we experience depend on conditions.
People of this world are deluded. They're always longing for something - always, in a word, seeking.
To see nothing is to perceive the Way, and to understand nothing is to know the Dharma, because seeing is neither seeing nor not seeing and because understanding is neither understanding nor not understanding.
Not thinking about anything is Zen. Once you know this, walking, sitting, or lying down, everything you do is Zen.
A Buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad.
