|#128||He thought of Musashi, the Sword Saint, standing in his garden more than|
three hundred years ago. "What is the 'Body of a rock'?" he was asked.

slashing his abdomen with a knife. Just as the pupil was about to comply,
the Master stayed his hand, saying, "That is the 'Body of a rock'."

He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool. Shun him.
He who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep. Wake him.
