Coming back with satori but everything just as before: Hermit Mountain's drizzle and mist, Crooked River's waves . . .
What is the color of the wind? Where does the rain come from?
Seeking words, chasing phrases: When do you have time for satori?
Walking is Zen; sitting, too.
Heaven, earth, and I: the same root. Everything and I: one thing.
However priceless, a piece of gold In the eye is nothing but grit.
Reach for it, and you'll miss; let it loose, and it'll follow.
From the origins nothing exists.
Sitting motionless, nothing happening — Spring coming, grass growing.
One snowflake falling on a burning furnace.
Meeting Sakyamuni, kill him! Meeting Bodhidharma, kill him, too!
When cold say cold; When hot say hot.
One blind man leads many blind men Into the fire hole hand in hand.
Worldly passions inseparable from satori.
No ugliness in a loved child.
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.
Angry waves: not so dangerous as man's mind.
Teaching beyond teaching; No leaning on words and letters.
Rich food doesn't tempt the man who has eaten.
The Billion Worlds, a bubble on the sea; All Buddhas and Patriarchs, a flash of lightning.
A smiling face offers mercy; A troubled mind contains vicious poison.
Killing or vivifying is in these hands.
No good thought, no evil thought.
Spring opens a hundred flowers — for whom?
Open your mouth— instantly wrong; Move your tongue— against the truth.
A hungry dog bites a dry bone.
To call heaven earth makes it earth? To name earth heaven makes it heaven?
Day after day a very good day: Winds come and trees bow.
He dies, I die - Where can we meet?
Watch all sentient beings with merciful eyes.
Need fire? Best strike a flint. Water? Dig a well.
Once you preach, the point is gone.
Seek satori within yourself! Where else?
Spring comes: grass grows.
Cast away Dharma, Not to mention non-Dharma.
Watch your own steps!
Produce Mind Without attachment to anything.
Go a thousand miles not moving a foot!
Everything is true just as it is: Why dislike it? Why hate?
Much understand, much problem. Little understand, little problem. Complete DON'T KNOW, no problem.
Ordinary mind is the Way.
Not flattered by praise, not hurt by blame.
With the slightest yes and no, Mind is lost in confusion.
Pictured rice cakes dissolve hunger?
Where no Buddha, the Buddha works.
Merciful words come out of the merciful mouth.
Ten thousand laws end in One : Don't stick to that, either!
The man who's drunk water Knows if it's cool or warm.
From outside the shoes, to scratch where you itch.
It rains: the earth wet.
