Things of real worth

Ryokan Daigu, a Zen master, lived the simplest kind of life in a little hut at the foot of a mountain. One evening, a thief visited the hut only to discover there was nothing of value to steal. Ryokan returned and caught him.

Ryokan: You have come a long way here and you should not return empty-handed. Here, take this robe with you.

The thief was bewildered but took the robe.

Ryokan sat naked, watching the moon.
he mused: Poor fellow, it is a pity I cannot present him with this beautiful moon.

Most people only pursue wealth and status, but in the world how much can one acquire? The stars, the moon, mountains and flowing waters, each flower and blade of grass are all there for you to appreciate.

良宽: 你远道而来,也不该让你空手而回。这件衣服你带走吧。
良宽禅师赤着身子,在月光下无限感慨的说: “可惜我不能把这美丽的月亮也送给他!”

一般人只追求名利,其实天地之间你拥有的何其多? 星、月、山、水,一花一草都因你而在!
