“Dongshan’s Cold & Heat”

A monk asked  Dongshan: “So, how avoid the coming of the winter cold and summer heat?”

Shan said. “Why not turn to the place without cold and heat?”

The monk said, “So, what is the place without cold and heat?”

Shan said, “In the cold time, the cold kills the preceptor; in the burning time, the burning kills the preceptor.”
