Lingzhao

‘While sitting, Layman Pang asked his daughter Lingzhao, “A teacher of old said ‘Bright and clear are the one hundred grasses, bright and clear is the meaning of the ancestral teaching.’ How about yourself?”
Lingzhao said, “How could someone who is mature and great say such a thing?”
Pang said, “How would you say it?”
Lingzhao said, “Bright and clear are the one hundred grasses, bright and clear is the meaning of the ancestral teachng.”
Pang laughed.’ (Shinji Shobogenzo).

Before you throw up your hands and proclaim that there is no difference, remember how sharp Lingzhao is. Perhaps she has something. How about yourself?
