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 wil 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 disiples. And brother, what shall be your path?
3rd Monk: I'm going to train cats to jump through hoops.
