《信心銘》3

9  違順相爭 是爲心病

Wei-shun hsiang-cheng, shih wei hsin ping.

Wei2shun4 xiang1zheng1, shi4 wei2 xin1 bing4.

Ijun ai arasou, kore o shinbyõ to nasu.

To set longing against loathing, makes the mind sick.

 

11  不識玄旨 徒勞念靜

Pu-shi hsüan-chi, tu lao nien-ching.

Bu4shi4 xuan2zhi3, tu2 lao2 nian4jing4.

Genshi o shirazareba, itazura ni nenjõ ni rõ su.

Not knowing the deep meaning (of the way), it is useless to quiet thoughts.
