Star monk Shen Hsui, not desiring to be desiring not to be seen as desiring,
wrote anonymously at midnight on the newly plastered wall of the empty hall,
“The body’s the stand, the mind’s the mirror, be diligent, keep the mirror clear of dust.”
Illiterate kitchen boy Hui Neng had a friend read it.
Immediately he grasped the gist of it.
He had his friend write under it,
Where’s the dust?”
