One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master, was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."
HERE COME AND END YOUR SUFFERING
Posted on Mar.22.2009 @ 06:02AM EDT by chontri
If any of you, ladies and gentlemen, have suffering and want to end it, just come here and give it ChonTri. Please do not hesitate.
Is this an easier way to end your suffering? ChonTri thinks that it is much easier than if you read some books, quote some other's words discussing about suffering or how to end it, and think that other people do not read that, do not know that, and you must tell them about that.
If you do the latter - reading and quoting - then it is like you are some cashier who at some bank counts others' money whole day every working day but go home wihout extra pennies except some paid by weekend for your daily labour.
