At the Shrine

Laughing Buddha


Master Tze and his companions were at the shrine.

‘How can he laugh when the world is so full of pain and woe?’ asked Bardumon.

‘It depends what’s in the teapot,’ said Master Tze.

Bardumon went away with an angry look.

‘So, what is in the teapot?’ Skyfoot asked.

‘Nothing!’ Master Tze told him.

‘What do we do, then?’

‘We sing,’ the Master said.

‘And what do we sing?’

‘Anything at all.’

So they sang Goodbye from White Horse Inn.
