The Buddha's Heart

I want to share with you a comment I just heard while watching a Korean Historical TV drama about warrior monks.

The Abbott of the Buddhist monastery asked his favorite student a question concerning a famous Buddhist Sutra (a teaching from The Buddha). The student replied with the correct text book answer.

The Abbott proceeded to scold the student:

"Fool," he said. "You cannot reach Enlightenment by reading The Buddha's Words. You Must read His Heart"!! 

I really like The Truth contained in these words. I also want to point out another Truth:

True Gems of Wisdom are "hidden" all around us in plain sight.
