Picking and Choosing

Chao Chou taught "The Ultimate Path has no difficulties-just avoid picking and choosing."

A monk asked Chao Chou, "What is not picking and choosing?"

Chou said, "In the heavens and on earth I alone am the Honored One."

The monk said, "This is still picking and choosing."

Chou said, "Stupid oaf! Where is the picking and choos­ing? "

The monk was speechless.

dcj commentary: Chou talks past the question.
