An art writer was giving a lecture at the monastery.
“Art is found in a museum,” he said, “but beauty is found everywhere, in the air, on the ground, all over the place, free for the taking―with no name attached to it.”
“Exactly like spirituality,” said the Master the following day when he was alone with his disciples. “Its symbols are found in the museum called a temple, but its substance is everywhere, free for the taking, unrecognized, with no name attached to it.”
