The story of the Wise Old Man in the Mountain

In Ancient China, a wise old man lived in the mountain in his hut.
Seekers all over the country gathered around him for wisdom.
The mysterious thing was, though the hut was a tiny, straw-thatched house, it accommodated all who went in, no matter how many of them, and never filled.
They sat quietly in the presence of the old man, who barely uttered words.
The space was timeless stillness.
At the end, they came out of the hut and they could see things so clearly.
Colour was so bright - the green of trees, the red of flowers, the blue of the sky.
Everything outside in the world was shining with beautiful light.
They had found divinity in all creation.
There were enlightened.
