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