A NEW COMER
One day, a newcomer got a chance and met a Zen teacher in front yard of his rural monastery - properly, a hut. He asked him: -Master, I am a newcomer and I would like to learn something. Please teach me. -There is nothing in here to teach or to learn. He looked at the newcomer for little moment then walked away.
