Blue Cliff Record #57
Joshu Alone and Honored

A monk asked Joshu, “The Far-reaching Way is without difficulty, only rejecting picking and choosing. So what doesn’t pick and choose?”

Joshu said, “Above the heavens, below the heavens, only I, alone and honored.”

The monk said, “This is tantamount to picking and choosing.”

Joshu said, “You field-and-village slave, where is picking and choosing?”

The monk was speechless.
