The Blue Cliff Record, Case 43 Dongshan's "No Cold or Heat"

A monk said to Dongshan, "Cold and heat descend upon us. How can we avoid them?"
Dongshan said, "Why don't you go where there is no cold or heat?"
The monk said, "Where is the place where there is no cold or heat?"
Dongshan said, "When cold, let it be so cold that it kills you; when hot, let it be so hot that it kills you."
