[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
(Twenty Essential Monastery Principles)
