A samurai came to Zen Master’s room with a fish in his hand.
He said, “Master, guess whether this fish in my hand is alive or dead?”
Zen Master knew that if he said it was dead, the samurai would definitely let go of his hand and prove that it was a live fish; and if he said the fish was alive, the samurai would definitely pinch the fish to death.
So, Zen Master said, “It’s dead.”
The samurai immediately released his hand and smiled: “Haha, Zen Master, you lost, you see this fish is alive.”
Zen Master smiled faintly, and said, “Yes, I lost.”
But, he won a fish’s life.
Good morning, my friends!🙏👀🔑💧☕
