Earthworm Puzzle

 

 

 

 

In the early days of Ling Chuan Monastery, the monks were working on its expansion. One day, while digging, they discovered that an earthworm was chopped in half, and each half was wriggling by itself.

The Master saw this and asked, “In which end resides the Buddha nature?”

All were silent.
