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