An Innocent Banana




A senior student said, “I feel my study here is complete.” Master Li said, “You know, if you eat green bananas, you get a terrible tummyache. The student thought for a moment and then asked Master Li what he meant. “As a banana, you don’t know if you are ready to be eaten yet or not. You simply exist as a banana. Someone else must decide whether you are ripe. You have practiced diligently but you are not quite ripe yet. You’re still an innocent banana.”
