Enduring the Insult,
The Patriarch Leaves Silently
Having broken off two of the Patriarch's teeth,
Dharma Master Shen Guang felt that he had won a real victory. Without
saying a word, Patriarch Bodhidharma turned around and left. He did
not fight back. Not at all! Foreigners are bound to be bullied. After
all, he couldn't go to the government and file suit against Dharma
Master Shen Guang for knocking out two of his teeth. Those who have
left home have to be patient; how much more must a Patriarch forbear!
After that happened, he just left and headed toward Henan.
