Delightful Chrysanthemums

Delightful Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums (1)

Late one night a thief wielding a big sword broke into Master Taigan’s hut. Taigan, who was reading a book, looked up and said: “What do you want? My money or my life?”

    “Your money,” demanded the thief.

    Taigan handed him his purse and went back to reading, as if nothing had happened. The thief crept out of the room, feeling ill at ease.

    “Wait!” yelled the master. The thief froze, terrified. “Don’t forget to shut the door!”

    Days later, when the thief was caught, he confessed that he’d never felt more afraid than when the Buddhist priest called after him.
