When Yang-shan Hui-chi (807-883), as a young monk, paid a visit to the Ch'an master Hsing-k'ung, there was a monk who asked Hsing-k'ung:
-What is the meaning of the Patriarch's coming from the West?
In anger, one looks for calmness; In desire, one looks for purity; In blindness, one looks for clarity; In confusion, one looks for Buddhahood; In hallucination, one looks for Zen. In delusion, one seeks enlightenment; In illusion, one seeks ultimate truth.
If one could drop them all at once, He would immediately be in peace
