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.
Don't know much about it or the man behind it. It was said that the man or being needed to prepare his house for the return of the master That getting things in order would help bring the return of the master of the house. Of course, the house being your body and mind. The master I guess would be your true nature. Sorry, probably all wrong ... better to look it up on the internet ... haha

religions and wisdom teachings relating to self-awareness in people's daily lives and humanity's place in the universe.
