The Temple

One day Hofuku said to his disciples, “When one passes behind the temple, he meets Chang and Li, but he does not see anyone in front of it. Why is this? Which of the two roads is better?” A monk answered, “Something must be wrong with the sight. Nothing is gained without seeing.” The Master scolded the monk, saying, “Stupid, the temple is always like this.” The monk said, “If it were not the temple, one should see something.” The Master said, “I am talking about the temple and nothing else.”
