The Southern Monastery

Sekiso lived and taught on the Southern Mountain, and Kankei lived and taught on the Northern Mountain. One day, a monk came from the Northern Monastery to the Southern Monastery in search of teaching. Sekiso said to him, “My Southern Monastery is no better than the Monastery in the North.” The monk did not know what reply to make. When he returned to Kankei and told him the story, Kankei said, “You should have told him that I am ready to enter Nirvana any day.”
