Xianglin Chengyuan [W-G: Hsiang-lin Ch’eng-yuan / J: Kyorin Choon]



                Xianglin Chengyuan was once asked the traditional question, “Why did the first patriarch come east?”  He replied, “It’s not good for one’s health to sit too long.”

[Xianglin Chengyuan – Zen Masters of China: 279-80]
