The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

"Spiritual powers and their wondrous functioning--hauling water and carrying firewood." --Layman Pang, upon his realization

Where there are one thousand human beings, within one thousand ways of living, one thousand buddhas are revealed.  Buddha is revealed through mountains, valleys, trees, and grasses, through a multitude of phenomena.  The heart that can be revered in whatever form we see, in whatever direction we look, this is the true heart of Buddhism, this is Buddha life.
