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.
TOPIC: TALKS ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT IS NEVER UNDERSTOOD

If an enlightened being talks about enlightenment it is never understood. Only those who have been enlightened or who have experienced enlightenment will understand. I think it is impossible for those not yet enlightened to understand. Otherwise many would have been enlightened.
