Seen elsewhere on the web:

from Seung Sahn:

A monk once asked Jo Ju, "I have just entered the monastery. Please teach me, Master."
Jo Ju said, "Have you had breakfast?"
"Yes, I have," replied the monk.
"Then," said Jo Ju, "wash your bowls."
The monk was enlightened.

1. What did the monk attain?

2. If you were the monk, what could you say to Jo Ju?

Commentary: Breakfast in the morning, lunch at noon, dinner in the evening. After the meal, do you understand your job? Then do it.
