(Feb 17 2017 at 02:37 PM)
The twenty-first case of "The Blue Cliff Record" is as follows:
'A monk asked Chih Men, "How is it when the lotus flower has not yet emerged from the water?" Chih Men said, "A lotus flower."
The monk said, "What about after it has emerged from the water?" Men said, "Lotus leaves."'
(trans. Thomas and J. C. Cleary, Shambala Publications, pg 139)
