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