A samurai came to see a famous teacher, hoping to become his student. He asked:

“Master, perhaps you could tell me about heaven and hell?”

“That is hell!” said the master.

Realizing he had been given a great lesson, the samurai sheathed his sword and bowed deeply in gratitude

“And that is heaven!”, said the master
