One day Master Namchun said, “No Buddha of the three worlds knows it, but rather cats and cows know it.”
Student: “How can cats and cows know it while no Buddha of the three worlds does?”
Master: “Because you don’t know.”
When you are ignorant, the Buddha is also ignorant, but when you are wise, cats and cows are wise as well.
