Q196. Student: “What is the true-self?”

A. Master: “Ask me one more time.”

Student: “What is the true-self?”

Master: “I am not deaf. Why do you ask the same question two times?”





What a poor student!

He can’t distinguish an answer from a question.

If you are to see and hear new things, stop keeping company with your old friends.
