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