Text Quotes
Just study Buddhism. Don’t follow the sentiments of the world  (Dogen Quotes) When the old plum tree blooms, the entire world blooms  (Dogen Quotes) Prefer to be defeated in the presence of the wise than to excel among fools  (Dogen Quotes) Time is three eyes and eight elbows  (Dogen Quotes) When you walk in the mist, you get wet  (Dogen Quotes) People who truly follow the Way would do well to conceal the fact that they are Buddhists  (Dogen Quotes) When other sects speak well of Zen, the first thing that they praise is its poverty  (Dogen Quotes) To study Buddhism is to study ourselves. To study ourselves is to forget ourselves  (Dogen Quotes) The color of the mountains is Buddha’s body; the sound of running water is his great speech  (Dogen Quotes) If we seek the Buddha outside the mind, the Buddha changes into a devil  (Dogen Quotes) The true person is not anyone in particular; but like the deep blue color of the limitless sky, it is everyone, everywhere in the world  (Dogen Quotes) In the stream, rushing past to the dusty world, my fleeting form casts no reflection  (Dogen Quotes) Handle even a single leaf of green in such a way that it manifests the body of the Buddha. This in turn allows the Buddha to manifest through the leaf  (Dogen Quotes) Although its light is wide and great, the Moon is reflected in a puddle one inch wide. The whole Moon and the entire sky is reflected in one dew drop on the grass  (Dogen Quotes) That you carry yourself forward and experience the myriad things is delusion. That the myriad things come forward and experience themselves is awakening  (Dogen Quotes) If you want to travel the Way of Buddhas and Zen masters, then expect nothing, seek nothing, and grasp nothing  (Dogen Quotes) To what shall I liken the world? Moonlight, reflected in dew drops, shaken from a crane’s bill  (Dogen Quotes) Those who see worldly life as an obstacle to Dharma see no Dharma in everyday actions. They have not yet discovered that there are no everyday actions outside of Dharma  (Dogen Quotes) To start from the self and try to understand all things is delusion. To let the self be awakened by all things is enlightenment  (Dogen Quotes) Zazen is the ultimate practice. This is indeed the True Self. The Buddhadharma is not to be sought outside of this  (Dogen Quotes) Just practice good, do good for others, without thinking of making yourself known so that you may gain reward. Really bring benefit to others, gaining nothing for yourself. This is the primary requisite for breaking free of attachments to the Self  (Dogen Quotes) Something you want badly enough can always be gained. No matter how fierce the enemy, how remote the beautiful lady, or how carefully guarded the treasure, there is always a means to the goal for the earnest seeker. The unseen help of the guardian gods of heaven and earth assure fulfillment  (Dogen Quotes) Your body is like a dew-drop on the morning grass, your life is as brief as a flash of lightning. Momentary and vain, it is lost in a moment  (Dogen Quotes) Meditation is not a way to enlightenment, Nor is it a method of achieving anything at all. It is peace itself. It is the actualization of wisdom, The ultimate truth of the oneness of all things  (Dogen Quotes) You should stop searching for phrases and chasing after words. Take the backward step and turn the light inward. Your body-mind of itself will drop off and your original face will appear. If you want to attain just this, immediately practice just this  (Dogen Quotes) Refraining from all evil, not clinging to birth and death, working in deep compassion for all sentient beings, respecting those over you and pitying those below you, without any detesting or desiring, worrying or lamentation - this is what is called Buddha. Do not search beyond it  (Dogen Quotes) When mountains and waters are painted, blue, green, and red paints are used, strange rocks and wondrous stones are used, the four jewels and the seven treasures are used. Rice-cakes are painted in the same manner. When a person is painted, the four great elements and five skandhas are used  (Dogen Quotes) To study the Way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self  (Dogen Quotes) There are thousands upon thousands of students who have practiced meditation and obtained its fruits. Do not doubt its possibilities because of the simplicity of the method. If you can not find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?  (Dogen Quotes) Do not practice buddha-dharma with the thought that it is to benefit others  (Dogen Quotes)
