When a monk came to say good bye to Chao-chou Tsung-shen (778-897), a brilliant Chinese Ch'an master.
-Where will you go?
The monk answered:
-Any place where I can learn Buddha dharma.
Well every time you go to a new place where you have never been before it is an amazing experience. It is the same thing to the austronauts especially going to space. But it seems those experiences does not result to enlightenment..
