Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One day Chinso was up on a tower with a few officials when one of them, seeing a group of monks, said, “Look, monks on a pilgrimage.”

“Not so,” said Chinso.

“How could you say it’s not so?” asked an exasperated official.

“Wait till they get near, and I will examine them.”

The monks arrived, and Chinso called out: “Reverend gentleman!”

They all raised their heads and looked at him.

“What did I tell you?” said Chinso to the official.
