Diamond Sutra Story with Twist in the Tail

A monk came to an old woman's home to ask for food. She said, "I've just prepared this blueberrry pie and tea. If you can answer a question about the Diamond Sutra, I'll give it to you. The monk said, "Dear lady, I study the Diamond Sutra all day long. Of course I can answer any question! The old the lady asked, "Are you eating this bueberry pie with the mind of the past,the mind of the present or the mind of the future?

The monk could not think of any answer so he pulled out his book and began reading. Ater an hour,the old lady took pity on him and said, "You foolish monk! You are eating this pie with your mouth! Please partake of some pie and tea!" -Tranquil Standing Mountain JoinMailingList4LatestUpdates/Reply
