THERE IS OR THERE IS NOT
Chang-ch'o, an educated man, once asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chih-t'sang:
-Is there paradise or hell?
Chih-t'sang replied:
-No.
Chang-ch'o protested:
-That is not correct. When I was studying under the priest Ching-shan, he always replied, "Yes."
Chih-t'sang asked:
-Do you have wife and kids?
Chang-Ch'o answered:
-I have a wife and two kids.
Chih-t'sang again asked:
-Does the priest Ching-shan have any wife and kids?
Chang-ch'o said:
-He is a monk, how could he have wife and kids?
Chih-t'sang said:
-So, wait until when you are like the priest Ching-shan who does not have wife and kids, then say,"No."
