Sunday Joshu

by layman k

Once, while the master was out walking with Wan-yuan (Ban’en), he pointed to a pile of earth and said, “That would be a good place for a patrol-box.”
    Wen-yuan then went over to the place, stood there, and said, “Give me your passport.”
    The master punched him.
    Wen-yuan said, “Your passport is in order. Pass on.”
