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