Much understand, much problem. Little understand, little problem. Complete DON'T KNOW, no problem.
To call heaven earth makes it earth? To name earth heaven makes it heaven?
When cold say cold; When hot say hot.
A smiling face offers mercy; A troubled mind contains vicious poison.
Seek satori within yourself! Where else?
Open your mouth— instantly wrong; Move your tongue— against the truth.
Cast away Dharma, Not to mention non-Dharma.
Where no Buddha, the Buddha works.
From the origins nothing exists.
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.
Not flattered by praise, not hurt by blame.
Worldly passions inseparable from satori.

Spring opens a hundred flowers — for whom?
Reach for it, and you'll miss; let it loose, and it'll follow.
Once you preach, the point is gone.
Teaching beyond teaching; No leaning on words and letters.
Sitting motionless, nothing happening — Spring coming, grass growing.
Day after day a very good day: Winds come and trees bow.
The Billion Worlds, a bubble on the sea; All Buddhas and Patriarchs, a flash of lightning.
Everything is true just as it is: Why dislike it? Why hate?
One blind man leads many blind men Into the fire hole hand in hand.
However priceless, a piece of gold In the eye is nothing but grit.
From outside the shoes, to scratch where you itch.
Heaven, earth, and I: the same root. Everything and I: one thing.
Meeting Sakyamuni, kill him! Meeting Bodhidharma, kill him, too!
Fire is hot; water, cold.
Never comparable to anything: How can I preach it?
Coming back with satori but everything just as before: Hermit Mountain's drizzle and mist, Crooked River's waves . . .
Rich food doesn't tempt the man who has eaten.
Ten thousand laws end in One : Don't stick to that, either!
It rains: the earth wet.
Ordinary mind is the Way.
No good thought, no evil thought.
Walking is Zen; sitting, too.
Watch all sentient beings with merciful eyes.
Go a thousand miles not moving a foot!
Killing or vivifying is in these hands.
One snowflake falling on a burning furnace.
Produce Mind Without attachment to anything.
Spring comes: grass grows.
Need fire? Best strike a flint. Water? Dig a well.
A hungry dog bites a dry bone.
No ugliness in a loved child.
The man who's drunk water Knows if it's cool or warm.
What is the color of the wind? Where does the rain come from?
Pictured rice cakes dissolve hunger?
Seeking words, chasing phrases: When do you have time for satori?
