Quijong’s ‘the visible true-Self’

When a monastic asked Master Quijong, “What is the visible true-Self?”, the master, standing on tiptoe, said, “Can you see?” The monastic answered, “No, I can’t.” The master said, “There are three kinds. Be free to make a choice.”

Student: “What are the three kinds?”

Master: “A cup, a table and a tree.”

Commentary:

Choose any one and the others will come along spontaneously.
