Yunyan

‘Yunyan asked a monk, “Where have you been?”
The monk replied, “I was just putting on some more incense.”
Yunyan asked, “Did you see Buddha?”
“Yes, I did.”
“Where did you see him?”
The monk said, “In the human world.”
Yunyan praised him: “You’re just like the ancient Buddhas.”‘ (The Record of Yunyan)

Where else would you expect to find Buddha? What do you think he looked like to the monk?
