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