One day a monk paid a visit to Tinh Khong (1091-1170), a Vietnamese Zen master, who was of the tenth generation of Vo Ngon Thong lineage, and asked:

FIRE & HAND
The fire does not intend to come to contact the hand; The hand does not intend to reach out to contact the fire, either. But when the man named Woodsman put his naked hand into the fire; It gets extremely hot like hell and blistered really bad. In crying, he ran out to share his burned experience with others. Some would give him a vaseline bandage, Some would give him a sigh, Some would give him a laugh. But none of them wants to have any experience like that, because they already knew and sweared never touch fire again.
