Shoyoroku Case 3

A King of Eastern India invited the sage Hannyatara (Prajnatara), the teacher of Bodhidharma, for a meal. The King asked, "Why don't you recite sutras?" Hannyatara replied, "This poor follower of the Way does not stay in the world of the subject when breathing in, and has nothing to do with the world of objects when breathing out. I am always reciting the sutra of the way it is (tathata) in millions of millions of volumes."
