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.
WANDERING IN THE MOUNTAIN
One day, Chang-sha Ching-tsen (d. 868), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an masters, wandered in the mountain. When he was back just at the gate of the temple, the head monk asked him: -Where have you been, Sir? Chang-sha replied: -I was wandering in the mountain. The head monk asked again: -Where did you go and then come back? Chang-sha replied: -First, pursuing the fragrant grasses I went, then following the falling flowers I returned. The head monk said: -It's very much like the sense of springtime. Chang-sha said: -It's even more than the autunm dew dripping on the lotuses.
