How will you greet an enlightened man not with words, nor with silence?
Goso said, “When you meet an enlightened man on the road, greet him not with words, nor with silence. Tell me, how will you greet him?”
Student: “How will you greet an enlightened man not with words, nor with silence?”
Master: “I will say ‘Hello’.”
Student: “Hello is a word.”
Master: “It is certain that you are not an enlightened man.”
You should watch your tongue before young children.
Don’t discuss poems with him who is not poet.
Don’t show off your swordsmanship before a man who is not a swordsman.
