- The sutra
- Hakuju served as a distinguished lecturer at the Tendai-sect college. As he was lecturing with his customary zeal on the Chinese classics one hot summer's afternoon, he noticed that a few of the students were dozing off. He stopped his lecturing in midsentence and said, "It is a hot afternoon, isn't it? Can't blame you for going to sleep. Mind if I join you?"
- With this, Hakuju shut his textbook, and leaning well back in his chair, fell asleep.
- The class was dumbfounded, and those who had been dozing were awakened by his snores. All sat up in their seats and waited for the master to awaken.
