story

I heard the story of a famous Buddhist monk who was visiting an ashram to give a talk. The ashram was very excited to have the monk come, and asked him to send a bio so that they could advertise his talk. They didn’t hear back from him for a while, so they asked again. Still nothing. They asked again. No response. Finally, the day before the talk, they asked one final time for a bio, or resume, or whatever, and at last they received a reply. Four words: “One mistake after another.”

  1. hmmm… not sure I like that. Leaves out the statement of learning.

  2. Maybe he kept the statement of learning for his talk… I totally identify with his terse life summary, though.
