Baizhang and a Wild Duck”
Great Master Ma and Baizhang were walking to a rest stop. Seeing young wild ducks passing in flight, Great Master said, “What’s that?”
Baizhang said, “Young wild ducks.”
Great Master said, “To what place are they going away?”
Baizhang said, “They passed in flight and are gone away.”
Great Master proceeded to twist the tip of Baizhang’s nose.
Baizhang did suffer the pain and cried out.
Great Master said, “How have they already flown and gone away?”
