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.
About Reality Truth Freedom which I have told some before;
What do we mean by no-thought? to keep your nature pure, Those who understand the teaching of no-thought penetrate the ten thousand teachings. Those who understand the direct teaching of no-thought reach the stage of enlightenment.
An old monk hardly has room for himself Much less for a visiting cloud-
Purity has no form The mind is then expansive like the clear blue sky through which clouds form and pass and clear continually
