“No Cold and Heat” by Tozan (Blue Cliff Record Case 43: Dongshan’s Cold and Heat)

A monk asked Tozan: “How can we escape the cold and the heat?”

Tozan replied, “Why not go where there is no cold and heat?”

“Is there such a place?” the monk asked.

Tozan commented, “When cold, be thoroughly cold; when hot, be hot through and through.”
