Daiju visited the master Baso in China. Baso asked, "What do you seek?"

"Enlightenment," replied Daiju.

"You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?" Baso asked.

Daiju inquired, "Where is my treasure house?"

Baso answered, "What you are asking is your treasure house."

Daiju was enlightened. Ever after we urged his friends: "Open your own treasure house and use those treasures."
