the below poignant and hilarious accounts are based on actual concurrent incidents…

The old abbot of a temple had a terrible toothache. So bad was it that it was debilitating… affecting his nerves literally. The hospital stay was humbling to him. It made him reflect about the importance of spiritual cultivation before his time in this life ran out. He wanted to practice well.

A young disciple of the abbot had a terrible stroke. So bad was it that it was debilitating… affecting his nerves literally. The hospital stay was boring to him. It made him reflect about the importance of entertainment before his time in this hospital ran out. He wanted a video game.
