Yaoshan Sees an Arrow
A monk asked Yaoshan,
“In a level field of shallow grass a great stag and the deer became a herd. So how is one able to shoot and get the great stag among the great stags?”
Shan said, “Look… an arrow.”
The monk lay down his body then rolled over.
Shan said, “Attendant, drag out this dead fellow.”
The monk then departed swiftly.
Shan said, “What limit is there for this fellow’s playing with mud balls?”
