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