One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.
BODHISATTVA & BUDDHA
One day the deluded old man was asked by a man: -How do you define a Bodhisattva? -A Bodhisattva is the one who will not sink when walking on water and will not get burned when going through fire? -And how do you define a Buddha? -A Buddha is the one who will not sink when walking on water, and will not get burned when going through fire. -So, what is the difference between a Bodhisattva an a Buddha? -When a Buddha wants to sink, he immediately sinks or when he wants to get burned, he immediately get burned. Meanwhile a Bodhisattva can't sink even when he wants to sink, he can't get burned even when he wants to get burned.
