The Snow that Falls from the Sky Turns Red;
He Presents It to the Patriarch
He cut off his arm. What happened then? Well,
blood gushed out of the wound, dyeing the snow red. A lot of blood
flowed and he mixed the blood with the snow, dyeing the originally
white snow red. Dharma Master Shen Guang took something, perhaps a
bamboo basket, scooped up a basketful of red snow, and said,
"Patriarch, please take a look: now the snow is red."
