Bodhidharma quotes (3)

Don't hate life and death or love life and death. Keep your every thought free of delusion and in life you'll witness the beginning of nirvana and in death you'll experience the assurance of no rebirth.
Bodhidharma   Category: Death

... this mind through endless kalpas without beginning has never varied. It has never lived or died appeared or disappeared increased or decreased. Its not pure or impure good or evil past or future. Its not true or false. Its not male or female.
Bodhidharma   Category: Unsorted

When delusions are absent the mind is the land of buddhas. When delusions are present the mind is hell. Mortals create delusions. And by using the mind to give birth to mind they always find themselves in hell. Bodhisattvas see through delusions. And by not using the mind to give birth to mind they always find themselves in the land of buddhas. If you don't use your mind to create mind every state of mind is empty and every thought is still. You go from one buddha-land to another. If you use your mind to create mind every state of mind is disturbed and every thought is in motion. You go from one hell to the next.
