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