Spiritual Light

Zen Master Hsueh-feng  encountered a monk and asked him where he had come from. The monk said, “From the Monastery of Spiritual Light.”

"Oh, I see" said the Zen Master.

The Master then 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.”
