- The sutra
- Tanka asked a monk, "Where are you from?"
- The monk replied, "From the foot of the mountain."
- Tanka said, "Have you had your dinner?"
- The monk said, "I have had it."
- Tanka said, "Is he open-eyed who brings food to a fellow like you and lets you eat it?"
- The monk could make no reply.
- Later Chokei asked Hofuku, "To give food to others is surely worthy. How could he fail to be open-eyed?"
- Hofuku said, "Both giver and receiver are blind."
- Chokei said, "Are you still blind, even though you exhaust every means?"
- Hofuku said, "How can you call me blind?"
- Setcho's comment is:
- Exhaust every means, and you will not be blind;
- You hold the cow's head to let it graze.
- The four sevens, the two threes,
- The following band
- Have handed down the dharma treasure,
- Raising dust and trouble to make men drown on land.
