One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.

This morning, spring water's as pure as the glass Which hold it for anyone who'd come in need. Human beings, animals, birds, trees and grasses... None of them who come is not satisfied the need.
Quote: "I come to zenguide reading the same thing over and over with less satisfaction but a bigger smile on my face. " ......... Each time it reads, each time it re-news. Just as each time you eat your meal.
