若以静处为是,闹处为非,
则是坏世间相而求实相,
离生灭而求寂灭。

— 大慧宗杲禅师
《语录》

If with quiet places as right, and with noisy places as wrong, this then destroys worldly forms [i.e. conventional or relative reality], and seeks true form [i.e. ultimate or absolute reality], departs from arising and ceasing [i.e. forms], and seeks tranquil extinguishment [i.e. emptiness of Nirvāṇa].

— Chán Master Dàhuì Zōnggǎo
