Tozan went to Ummon. Ummon asked him where he had come from.
Tozan said: `From Sato village.'
Ummon asked: `In what temple did you remain for the summer?'
Tozan replied: `The temple of Hoji, south of the lake.'
`When did you leave there?' asked Ummon.
`The twenty-fifth of August,' answered Tozan.
Ummon said: `I should give you three blows with a stick, but today I forgive you.'
The next day Tozan bowed to Ummon and asked: `Yesterday you forgave me three blows. I do not know why you thought me wrong.'
Ummon said: `You are good for nothing. You simply wander from one monastery to another.'
Before Ummon's words were ended Tozan was enlightened.
