A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:
-When it is cold, hen would go up on a tree and duck down to water.
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
