MAN OF WISDOM DOES NOT REALIZE TAO
One day a monk paid a visit to Tinh Khong (1091-1170), a Vietnamese Zen master, who was of the tenth generation of Vo Ngon Thong lineage, and asked: -From old days it was talked about "direct pointing", what does that mean? The master replied: -One goes to the farm and harvests everyday, but the storage is always empty. -I do not understand. -The sun and the moon are ever bright, but clouds arise and cover. Then the master gave this verse: "A man of wisdom did not realize Tao. A man of delusion realized Tao. One who is sleeping soundly does not know what is fale or what is true."
