Wisdom of Dōgen Zenji

From the timeless beginning have mountains been the habitat of great sagas, Wise ones and holy persons have all made mountains their secret chambers and their bodies and minds; by them mountains are fulfilled…When sages and wise ones reside in mountains, mountains belong to them, and therefore trees and rocks reside in their luxuriance, birds and animals are full of divine auspiciousness. This is so precisely because they are transfigured by the virtues of these sages and wise ones.

You must know this: It truly is that mountains favor wise ones and are fond of sages.”
