P'ang Yun (740-808) was a well known Chinese Zen Layman.
He was once selling bamboo baskets. Coming down off the a bridge, he stumbled and fell.
When Ling-chao saw this she ran to her father's side and threw herself down.
LOOKING AT THE BAMBOO TREES
One day when the d.o.m. was looking at the bamboo trees in the back yard of a neighbor, he saw the tall bamboo trees were tall and the short ones are short. And one of the tall ones said to him: -You are too short!
The d.o.m. said: -O. K.
And one of the short ones said: -You are too tall.
He said: -O.K.
The conversation then ended.
