Master Yabo said, “A beautiful pearl is hidden in a shell. A beautiful gem is hidden in a stone. When we see things around us, it doesn’t seem to exist. However, there is nothing that isn’t revealing it.”
Student: “How can I get the gem from a stone?”
Master: “You don’t have to break the stone.”
The sun appears to be hidden from the blind.
