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