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