A monk came to Master Pu-An to test his realization. Immediately Master Pu-An hit the monk with a staff, and the monk stepped forward and grabbed it. Master said, “I have been rude!” The monk then took the staff and hit Master Pu-An instead. Master said to the monk, “You are really good, really good!” The monk then bowed to the Master and the Master stopped him. “This time you are rude.” Master said. The monk laughed out-loud. Master said, “You suffered a major defeat today!”
