ABOUT THE ART
The Monk and the Bicycle - Zen Tale
A Zen teacher saw five of his little disciples returning from shopping, riding their bikes.
When they arrived at the monastery and dropped their bikes, the teacher asked the students:
"Why do you walk with your bikes?"
The first pupil said: "The bike carries, for me, the potato sacks. I'm glad not to have to carry them on my back! "
The teacher praised the first student: "You are a very smart boy! When you grow up you will not walk curved as I walk. "
The second pupil said: "I love seeing the trees and the fields where step!"
The master commended the second student: "His eyes are open and you see the side right the world."
The third disciple said: "When I pedal my bike I'm happy and full of energy."
The master commended the third student: "Your mind will expand with the softness of a wheel centered."
The fourth disciple said: "Pedaling my bike i live in harmony with all beings."
The teacher was pleased and said to the fourth student: "You follows on the golden path of goodness."
The fifth student said: "I ride my bike by pedaling."
The teacher sat at the feet of the fifth student and said: "I am your disciple."
