Shitou Xiqian [W-G: Shih-t’ou Hsi-chien / J: Sekito Kisen]



                Shitou Xiqian was the heir of Qingyuan. One day an inquirer asked him, “What am I supposed to do?”
                “Why are you asking me?” Shitou replied.
                “Where else can I find what I’m looking for?”
                “Are you sure you lost it?”

[Shitou Xiqian – Zen Masters of China: 94-99]
