With the slightest yes and no, Mind is lost in confusion.
A hungry dog bites a dry bone.
Cast away Dharma, Not to mention non-Dharma.
He dies, I die - Where can we meet?
One snowflake falling on a burning furnace.
Day after day a very good day: Winds come and trees bow.
The man who's drunk water Knows if it's cool or warm.
Angry waves: not so dangerous as man's mind.
It rains: the earth wet.
Heaven, earth, and I: the same root. Everything and I: one thing.
Pictured rice cakes dissolve hunger?
The Billion Worlds, a bubble on the sea; All Buddhas and Patriarchs, a flash of lightning.
However priceless, a piece of gold In the eye is nothing but grit.
Much understand, much problem. Little understand, little problem. Complete DON'T KNOW, no problem.
Ten thousand laws end in One : Don't stick to that, either!
Worldly passions inseparable from satori.
All things that exist are like a dream, a phantom, a bubble, a reflection; they are like dew or lightning; thus should you view them.
What is the color of the wind? Where does the rain come from?
From outside the shoes, to scratch where you itch.
Spring opens a hundred flowers — for whom?
Reach for it, and you'll miss; let it loose, and it'll follow.
Everything is true just as it is: Why dislike it? Why hate?
Produce Mind Without attachment to anything.
Need fire? Best strike a flint. Water? Dig a well.
A smiling face offers mercy; A troubled mind contains vicious poison.
When cold say cold; When hot say hot.
Coming back with satori but everything just as before: Hermit Mountain's drizzle and mist, Crooked River's waves . . .
Watch your own steps!
To call heaven earth makes it earth? To name earth heaven makes it heaven?
Seek satori within yourself! Where else?
Where no Buddha, the Buddha works.
Not flattered by praise, not hurt by blame.
No good thought, no evil thought.
Teaching beyond teaching; No leaning on words and letters.
Killing or vivifying is in these hands.
Once you preach, the point is gone.
Merciful words come out of the merciful mouth.
Fire is hot; water, cold.
Never comparable to anything: How can I preach it?
Rich food doesn't tempt the man who has eaten.
One blind man leads many blind men Into the fire hole hand in hand.
Open your mouth— instantly wrong; Move your tongue— against the truth.
Ordinary mind is the Way.
Walking is Zen; sitting, too.
Meeting Sakyamuni, kill him! Meeting Bodhidharma, kill him, too!
No ugliness in a loved child.
Spring comes: grass grows.
Seeking words, chasing phrases: When do you have time for satori?
Watch all sentient beings with merciful eyes.
From the origins nothing exists.
