    Pai-chang wished to send a monk to open a new monastery. He told his pupils that whoever answered a question most ably would be appointed. Placing a water jug on the ground, he asked, "Who can say what this is without calling its name?" The head Monk said, "No one can call it a wooden sandal." Kuei-shan, the cooking monk, tipped over the jug with his foot and went out. Pai-chang laughed and said: "The head monk loses." And Kuei-shan became the head Master of the new monastery.
