The Lazy Monk
A Zen Koan.
In a monastery, a Zen master gathered firewood and started a fire for a stove. He was preparing tea. A disciple asked him, "For whom are you preparing tea?"
The master replied, "You see that lazy guy sitting over there? It's for him."
He was referring to one particularly lazy student who kept dodging work and just sat around, while all the other students were active in work.
The student said, "Why do you have to prepare tea for him? He has grown up now. Let him prepare it on his own."
The Master smiled and said, "I am here and now."
