Miserable



One day the Master announced that a young monk who had recently come to the temple had reached an advanced state of enlightenment. The news caused some stir. When they saw him in the temple yard, some of the monks went to see the young enlightened one. “We heard you are enlightened. Is that true?” they asked.

“It is,” he replied.

“And how do you feel?”

“As miserable as ever,” said the monk.
