A philosopher asked the Buddha: “Can you tell me the truth without word and without wordlessness?” The Buddha answered with silence. The philosopher thanked him for his loving kindness, thanks to which he had entered the Tao. After he left, Ananda asked what he had learned. “A good horse runs even when seeing only the shadow of the whip.”
