The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Seven: The Principle of the Nature

12

When the Founding Master returned to Pongnae hermitage from Yŏngsan, he said to a disciple, “When I was returning here on a steamship, I noticed how deep and vast is the water in the sea. So, I measured every gallon of that water and counted every single fish in it. Do you perchance know how many there were?” That person could not guess the true meaning of his words.
