Sunlight, Lamplight

Zen Master Hsueh-feng asked a monk where he had come from.

The monk said, “From the Monastery of Spiritual Light.”

The Master said, “In the daytime, we have sunlight; in the evening, we have lamplight. What is spiritual light?”

The monk could not answer.

The Master said, “Sunlight. Lamplight.”
