The Jumping Cat Monastery - Part 2

After 3 months of deep meditation Abbot Rinpoche called his 3 most favoured monks to him and asked them the question above all other questions....


Abbot: And how will you seek to attain enlightenment brother?

1st Monk: I will meditate in a deep dark cave for seven years eating nothing but one bowl of rice daily.

Abbot: And how about you brother?

2nd Monk: Master, I will contemplate the sound of one hand clapping in the purifying snows of Annapurna.

Abbot: Worthy quests, my disciples. And brother, what shall be your path?

3rd Monk: I'm going to train cats to jump through hoops.
