Zen Story: Not far from Buddhahood

A university student while visiting Gasan asked him: "Have you read the Christian Bible?"

"No, read it to me," said Gasan.

"The student opened the Bible and read from St Mathew: "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall worry about itself".

Gasan said: "Whoever uttered those words I consider an enlightened man."

The student continued reading: "Ask and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asks receives, and he that seeks finds, and to him that knocks, it shall be opened."

Gasam remarked: "That is excellent. Whoever said that is not far from Buddhahood."
