Unborn Undying

The master instructed the assembly saying, “The Dharma originally is unborn, right now it is undying. Nothing more need be said. To speak a little bit is ‘giving birth’. To not speak is ‘dying’. All of you, just what will you do about this unborn and dying truth?”
A monk asked, “Right now was it unborn and dying?”
The master said, “This fellow can see only dead words.”
