FOR ILLUSTRATION SEE CHINESE SECTION
Early one morning, when the Master was bowing along the road, a horse-drawn carriage came up from behind. The carriage moved slowly without overtaking him. The Master moved out of the way. It came to a stop, and an official got out and asked, "Why is the Venerable Master prostrating himself on the road?" The Master told him. The official was also a native of Hsiang Hsiang, so they chatted pleasantly. He told the Master, "I am presently staying at Pai Yun Monastery in 0 K'ou, which is on the route to Wu T'ai. I can take your bag there for you if you wish." The Master accepted and thanked him, and they parted.
