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.
I was meaning to belch "hike" but I had a hiccup and...
not belch, what was it, word?
now I'm lost
But that black butterfly was around again today, as I was outside looking at the sun through the clouds he passed by me, as if to say "hic" to someone. But, I can't hear him so I said nothing in return, just praised, the sight, to see the light, in all ways, all one's rite, to transpose again.
