A buddha is one who does not seek.
In seeking this, you turn away from it.
The principle is the principle of
Non-seeking; when you seek it,
You lose it.
If you cling to non-striving,
This is the same as striving.
Thus the Diamond Cutter Scripture
Says, “Do not grasp truth,
do not grasp untruth,
and do not grasp that
which is not untrue.”
It also says, “The truth
that the buddhas find has no
reality or unreality.”

Pai-chang (720-814)
