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