198. the guru’s teaching

while the guru was trapped atop a tree by the tyger, his students wondered why he was late for class.

one student said, “maybe there is something wrong. maybe he is trapped somewhere. maybe he needs our help. he would want us to try and save him.”

another said, “maybe it’s a test. he would want us stay here and meditate as usual.”

all the students agreed that this was correct.

they were all wrong.
