“Xuefeng’s Rice Grain”

Xuefeng, teaching the assembly, said, “I pick up the entire great earth with my fingers and bring it like a big grain of rice from the paddy. I throw it away toward the area in front of you.  The lacquer bucket does not meet it.  I beat the universal drum begging you to look at it.”
