A monk asked Boso: "What is Buddha?"

Baso said: "This mind is not Buddha!"

Mumon's comments:  If anyone understands this, he is a graduate
of Zen.

If you meet a fencing-master on the road, you may give him your sword.
If you meet a poet, you may offer him your poem.
When you meet others, say only a part of what you intend.
Never give the whole thing at once!
