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.
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?
