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?
SITTING ON THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN
Time to time sitting on the top of the mountain alone. The moon's shining in the sky. There is neither the seer nor the seen, Neither the maker nor the made, Neither the knower nor the known. All's still and quiet. Alone! Absolutely Alone! When got down and back to the cave, The head's still intact and without a single hair on it.
