True Teaching

  A wise man met a person who said to do the study of becoming a Taoist hermit with miraculous powers(神仙).
  "Does the real Taoist himself come and teach the study?"
  "No."
  "Then, is there anyone who has become a Taoist hermit with miraculous powers(神仙) through the study?"
  "Not yet."
  "The real Taoist does not directly teach the study. Nobody has become a Taoist through the study you are doing. How can you be sure that your study is the study of becoming a Taoist hermit with miraculous powers(神仙)?"
  "..."

  This is a true story. And lots of things which are more ridiculous than this are taking place in reality.
  The true teaching is bound to make the teaching itself appear in those who are learning the teaching.

  When you meet numerous organizations or people who are spreading various teachings, why don't you recall the above story?
