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