One day a monk asked his master, “What is the true-Self?” The master said, “Dry shit.”
Student: “As far as I know, the true-Self is very holy. Why did the master say, ‘Dry shit’ when he was asked what the true-Self is?”
Master: “Because people are more attracted by the wrapper than by the contents when the wrapper is beautiful.”
Mouth is bitter whilst mind is sweet.
