A disciple of Zen Master Kassan lived with the master. He left to go on pilgrimage, concluding Master Kassan's instruction was not suited to him. But everywhere he went, he heard Master Kassan praised as the most excellent among teachers. Finally, he returned. He greeted his old teacher. He asked, strongly, "Why did you not reveal your profound insight to me?" Master Kassan replied, smiling gently, "When you boiled rice, did I not light the fire? When you handed out food, did I not hand out my bowl to receive it? When did I ever betray you?" Hearing this, the disciple was enlightened.

Grace is nothing special
that is why Grace is so wonderful

To see Grace
stop looking

Where is Grace?
Where not?

Grace and Peace to All

The Sacred in Me bows to the Sacred in You
