Joshu’s Why Not Quote to the End?

A monk asked Joshu, “The Far-reaching Way is without difficulty, only rejecting picking and choosing.  Just when there is language there is picking and choosing. So what is used for people, Venerable?”

Joshu said “Why don’t you quote these words to the end?”

The monk said, “I only recall up to this part.”

Joshu said, “Only this, The Far-reaching Way is without difficulty, only rejecting picking and choosing.”
