Two monks wanted to listen to music while walking in the garden. 👨🦲👨🦲
One of them did not get permission to listen to music from the Zen master.
While the other was allowed to listen.
The difference was how each of them asked the question.
First Monk: ‘When I am meditating on my walks through the garden, is it OK to listen to music?’
Zen Master: 'Absolutely Not'. Denied. ❌
Second Monk: ‘I’m listening to music while I’m walking in the garden. Is it OK for me to meditate?'’
Zen Master: 'Certainly'. Approved. ✔️
