If You LoveLove Openly
Twenty monks and one nunwho was named Eshunwere practicing meditation with a certain Zen master.
Eshun was very pretty even though her head was shaved and her dress plain. Several monks secretly fell in love with her. One of them wrote her a love letterinsisting upon a private meeting.
Eshun did not reply. The following day the master gave a lecture to the groupand when it was overEshun arose. Addressing the one who had written hershe said: "If you really love me so muchcome and embrace me now."
