• The Seeker’s Path
  • Sahng-jeh-nim said to the disciples, “Long ago, a man who wanted to learn how to attain immortality wandered around in search of a teacher.
  • When finally he found one, the teacher said, ‘Prove your devotion for ten years.’ So the man lived as a farmhand and devoted himself to working the teacher’s land.
  • When the ten years had passed, the teacher praised his sincerity and said, ‘I will now show you how to attain immortality.’
  • The teacher took him to a pond nearby and told him, ‘Climb up that willow tree and onto the branch extending over the water. When you jump into the water, you will attain immortality.’
  • With firm belief in the teacher, the man climbed up the tree and jumped off the branch.
  • Just as he was about to hit the water, colorful clouds gathered, accompanied by celestial music. A brilliant chariot appeared and took him up to heaven.
  • “Was this owing to the dao mastery of the teacher? Or was it due to the sincerity and devotion of the student? Contemplate this story well.”
