One day the Master asked, "What, in your opinion, is the most important of all religious questions?"

He got many answers:

"Does God exist?"

"Who is God?"

"What is the path to God?"

"Is there a life after death?"

"No," said the Master. "The most important question is: 'Who am I?'"

The disciples got some idea of what he was hinting at when they overheard him talking to a preacher:

Master: "So then, according to you, when you die your soul will be in heaven?"

Preacher: "Yes."

Master: "And your body will be in the grave?"

Preacher: "Yes."

Master: "And where, may I ask, will you be?"
