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