A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:
-When it is cold, hen would go up on a tree and duck down to water.
What's not sangha about the laity?. Monks and non-monks - variously, segregated/separate sleeping quarters, bathroom facilities, sometimes separate meditation halls with donations of money, food, and certain communal luxury goods [tv time], chocolate with no smoking, one alcoholic beverage vs none whatever for monks with English teaching the natives and building materials on the side.
