Mair Chapter 20 - THE MOUNTAIN TREE

Recommended Posts

Master Chuang explains how to get beyond worthiness and worthlessness - abide by the Way and maintain integrity.  This lesson is repeated in a succession of well-crafted tales.  In current phraseology, we would he advised to "keep a low profile" and "mind your own business."  The probable multiple authorship of even this one chapter is evident in the repetition, from three slightly different angles, of the story about Confucius being besieged between the statelets of Ch'en and Ts'ai.
