  When a monk was traveling on the road, he met an old woman, and asked:
-I would like to know which way that leads to Chao-chou, would you please give me the direction?
The old waman replied:
-Just go straight, don't make any... continue...

TRUE RELIGION & NON-RELIGION
Visitor:
True religion is no different to non-religion. There isn't any room for Buddha and such in the mind of the ordinary man. Burn his statue and walk away with his soul.

CT:
Where there is religion this old mountain man will not abide.
Where there is non-religion this old monutain man will be gone fast.

In here, there is no room for even the mind, so let alone ordinary man and buddha and such.

If anyone would like to burn statues of the Buddha, he can do as he likes, but he no way can burn them to the last one. And there is nothing for him to take with when walking away because they had nothing - even soul.

Visitor:
Thus! Thus! and no more but bags of air!!!
