The Empty Boat - synopsis - Indrajit Roy Choudhury (original)

This quote was added by sierra
There is a story about a monk who goes out in a boat alone to meditate on the water. While meditating, the monk feels the bump of another boat colliding with his. The monk feels the anger of being disturbed and ruminates in this anger until it is consuming and he opens his eyes to discover that the other boat is empty. The monk realized that the anger was inside himself until the bump of an external object brought it out. "The other person is merely an empty boat. The anger is within me."
