One day, Chang-sha Ching-tsen (d. 868), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an masters, wandered in the mountain. When he was back just at the gate of the temple, the head monk asked him:
-Where have you been, Sir?
I HAVE NOT SAID A WORD

From the day when he was totally awakened to last day when he passed away, it was about 45 years long, the Buddha was walking everywhere he could around the land of India and teaching what he knew to anyone who needed to be awakened like him. At the last moments, he said to the ones around him something like this:
"In 45 years now, I have not said a word."
Why did he say so?
