One day, a monk traveled into the mountain where Gensha Shibi resided to see the Zen master and study Zen with him. The monk said to Gensha: -I am a new comer, please be kind to tell me where I can enter the Zen gate. Gensha asked: -On the path you came here, you passed a brook, didn't you? The monk replied: -Yes, I did. Gensha asked again: -You heard the sound of running water, didn't you? The monk answered: -Yes, I did. Gensha said: -At the place where you heard the sound of running water is the path leading to the Zen gate.
