Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.
WHAT IS NOT BUDDHA DHARMA?
A monk came to say good bye to Ch'an master Niaowo (Bird's Nest). He said: -Thank you, Sir, for everything you've done for me. Now I got to go. Niaowo asked: -Where will you go? -Any place where I can learn Buddha dharmas. -Of Buddha dharmas, I got some. -Where is it? Niaowo pulled a thread out of his cloth sleeve, and asked: -Is this not a Buddha dharma?
