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.
WHO AM I?
Another day, in the back yard of the Zen teacher's monastery, another learner asked him:
-Master, I would like to know who I am. -What for is it to know something like that? -Please teach me. -Do you see the oak tree over there? He asked back while looking at the tree. -Yes, I do. -It got the answer, go and ask it.
