Comment on Article

When a disciple came from a faraway country, the Master asked, "What are you seeking?"

"Enlightenment."

"You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?"

"Where is my treasure house?"

"This seeking that has come upon you."

At that moment the disciple was Enlightened. Years later he would say to his friends, "Open your own treasure house and enjoy your treasures."
