I've had just enough time to... talk to the Monk about the scriptures.
Taken of the Monk & his books one night alone in Hangzhou, China.
“All the knowledge is in the scriptures”, the monk said.
“Studied it well and you will know all there is to know.”
The disciple took it to heart and studied it day and night.
And when he has memorized and could repeat every single word.
He went back to the monk with all he had learned.
“You have learned nothing”, the monk said.
“Except for the words you have read”
“The wisdom is not in the words”
“Go back and read some more!”
And the disciple burned the scriptures
And become a rich trader.
And the monk took another disciple
Who is asked to read more and more
And then some more…
