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