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