One day when Fa-yen Wen-i (885-958), one of the well known Chinese Ch'an masters, has ascended his seat. From the assembly, a monk came out and asked:
-What is one drop of water from the fount of Tsao-ch'i?
ABOUT EMPTINESS (SUNYATA)
Like using water to quench fire burning, The emptiness of dharmas has been talked about by wise men, In order to help people to stop raising views and holding on them, To get themselves liberated and free. If one now raises his views of emptiness and holding on them, then he cannot be helped, because he entirely misunderstood of it, Unless, he himself must empty his views of emptiness first.
