Once the Zen Master, Gudo entered the lecture hall and warned
the students. "I have brought today a special weapon.  I shall use
it and kill if any one of you makes noise or doze off during the lecture.
The students were curious to know what was the deadliest weapon.
But they could not find it out.  All the same, they were careful.  No one
dozed off, no one make pranks or noise during the lecture.  The
session was over peacefully without any casualty!

After the session, the students asked Gudo, : "Sir, now atleast tell
me what is that special weapon.  We shall be careful in future also
after knowing that deadly weapon.  Gudo said: "Behold the mother
of all weapons!"  So saying, he stuck out his tongue!
