大道至简

一个行者问老和尚:“您得道前,做什么?”
老和尚:“砍柴担水做饭。”
行者问:“那得道后呢?”
老和尚:“砍柴担水做饭。”
行者又问:“那何谓得道?”
老和尚:“得道前,砍柴时惦记着挑水,挑水时惦记着做饭;得道后,砍柴即砍柴,担水即担水,做饭做饭。”

  1. I love the story; its simple and to the point. I think that many of us would be a much better person if we can achieve this kind of concentration. Regardless of what life throw to us, we are who we are, nothing more and nothing less.
