Birthday Party

 

 

 

 

A lay disciple wanted to organize a birthday celebration for the Master and asked the Master for the date of his birth. The Master smiled but did not answer. The disciple was perplexed, so he asked again.

The Master said, “Where there is birth, there is death. Monks do not celebrate birthdays.”
