Comment on Article

The master was known to favor action over withdrawal. But he always insisted on "Enlightened" action.

The disciples wanted to know what "Enlightened" meant. Did it mean "right-intentioned"?

"Oh no," said the Master. "Think how right-intentioned the monkey is when he lifts a fish from the river to save it from the watery grave."
