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