The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Seven: The Principle of the Nature


While the Founding Master was living at Pongnae Hermitage, a Sŏn monk came from the Diamond Mountains one day to visit him. The Master asked, “Without considering the hardship, you came from afar to seek me out. What are you looking for?” The Sŏn monk replied, “I wanted to hear about the Way. Please tell me where the Way is.” The Founding Master said, “The Way is in your question.” The Sŏn monk bowed and left.
