Dogen

‘When you move mountains, rivers and earth, as well as the sun, the moon, and stars to practice, they in return move you to practice. This is not the open eye of just one time, but the vital eye of all times. Because it is all the open eye, the vital eye of all times, you move all buddhas and ancestors to practice, to listen to the teaching and to realize the fruit.’ (Shobogenzo Shoaku Makusa – Refrain from Unwholesome Action)

This is not different to what he expresses in the Bendowa – but then again, how could it be?
