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