A smiling face offers mercy; A troubled mind contains vicious poison.

In 2003, Zen Master Dae Kwan visited Zen Master Seung Sahn in Seoul. One time he said out loud, to no one in particular, “Much pain! Much pain! My body have much pain!”
Hearing this, Zen Master Dae Kwan said to him, “Sir, please give your pain to us. We want to take your pain.”
