Fragrance of Silence

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion

on

” Lao-tzu’s” dictum:

“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,

they asked him what the words meant ?

Said the master, “Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?”

All of them indicated that they knew.

Then he said, “Put it into words.”

All of them were …… Silent.

Love All.
