Judge


A nobleman had just visited the temple and was given a warm welcome and a most lavish dinner. After dinner, he was sitting in the courtyard when a bedraggled, dirty, beggar showed up at the entrance gate. He was invited inside and given a warm welcome and a lavish dinner. The nobleman approached Master Li and somewhat angrily said, “Why was that scoundrel given the same treatment I was? I am of noble blood and he is just a drifter!” Master Li said, “An innocent doe drinks from a river and so can an escaped murderer. Who am I to judge?”
