Thank you- I appreciate it- I was embarrassed to ask how to spell his name- When pronounced it sounded like rayon, like the fabric .. so that's the spelling I used for searching Google .. :blush:

(case 12 of wumen guan, gateless barrier. master ruiyan calls himself)

Yes, but the way I've always preferred the story:
(This is supposedly how he began each morning when he woke up)
Master ruiyan calls himself, "Master!:
"Yes I am here", he answers.
"Good then", he replies, "wake up"
"I am awake", he answers.
"Good", is the reply, "Don't let them fool you!"
"I won't", he replies.
"But they are tricky", is the reply.
"They won't fool me", is the response.

Thanks for sharing that! Partway through the talk -- right at the moment when Fischer asks, "Who's calling who?" :)

Funny and the critical question to boot!
