A. Master: “Do good things and don’t do bad things.”
Student: “Even a five-year-old child could know it.”
Master: “Even though a five-year-old child can say it,
even an eighty-year-old man can’t easily put it into practice.”
Don’t try to distinguish good things from bad things, but try to realise what their root is.
