The Hermit

Mountain Peak

What Is

The Way

A MASTER who lived as a hermit on a mountain was asked by a monk,
"What is the Way?"

"What a fine mountain this is," the master said in reply.

 

"I am not asking you about the mountain, but about the Way."

 

"So long as you cannot think beyond the mountain, my son, you cannot
reach the Way," replied the master.
