Un-mon’s Dried dung

Un-mon’s Dried dung

A monk asked Un-mon,”What is Buddha?” Un-mon answered him, “Dried dung.”

Student: “Why on earth did the master say such dirty words as ‘Dried dung’ out of so many words?”
Master: “Because you heard it as such.”

If you say that Un-mon said, ‘Dried dung’, not only will you lose your face but also humiliate your master.”
