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