Lungtan Chongzin [W-G: Lung-t’an Ch’ung-hsin / J: Ryutan Soshin]



                At the first meeting between Lungtan Chongzin and his future heir, Deshan Xuanjian, Deshan immediately took the offensive: “I’ve heard people speak about the famous dragon pool [lungtan], but I see neither dragon nor pool.”

                Chongzen replied, “You are in the midst of Lungtan.”
[Lungtan Chongzin – Zen Masters of China: 230-31]
