The Transmission of Light, Case 43 Liangshan

Liangshan studied with Zen master Tongan, who asked him, "What is the business under the patchwork robe?"
Liangshan had no answer.
Tongan said, "In studying Buddhism if you don't reach this state that is most miserable. You ask me and I'll tell you."
Liangshan asked him, "What is the business under the patchwork robe?"
Tongan said, "It is within."
Liangshan was thereupon greatly enlightened.
