告生死假

 


 

一位弟子,欲回俗家,向和尚請假。

和尚說:「可以,去向閻羅王請假吧!」

那位法師當下有所感悟。

 


 

 Take Leave of Life and Death

 

A monk, who wished to visit his family, asked the Master for a leave of absence. 

The Master said, “Sure, but can you ask for a leave from * King Yama?” Right then the monk had an awakening.

 

* King Yama rules the underworld and judges people upon death.
