丛林以无事为兴盛,
修行以念佛为稳当。

– 百丈大智禅师
  《丛林要则二十条》

[In] monasteries, [it is] without matters 
[of contention, confusion, complication…]  
as [spiritual] prosperity.

[For] cultivation [of] practice,
[it is] with mindfulness [of] Buddha as [the most] reliable,
[as it is the easiest, safest and swiftest
for the greatest results].  

– Chan Master Baizhang Dazhi
