The Blockhead Lord
Two Zen teachersDaigu and Gudowere invited to visit a lord. Upon arrivingGudo said to the lord: "You are wise by nature and have an inborn ability to learn Zen."
Nonsense,said Daigu. "Why do you flatter this blockhead? He may be a lordbut he doesn't know anything of Zen."
Soinstead of building a temple for Gudothe lord built it for Daigu and studied Zen with him.
