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