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