## One day,Ma To, who was Chinese Zen master in the 15th century , heard his master saying that you should make an effort to enter into the realm of no-birth and no-death. And he asked: "Respected Teacher, where can I find the realm of no-birth and no-death?" and the teacher said: "You can find it right in the world of birth and death. Where do you tell the wave to go to find water? You find water right in the wave. So nirvana, the nature of no-birth and no-death, is right there in the world of birth and death, if you know how to touch it, because birth and death is only an appearance.##
We want to touch it, show us how. Don't tell us what Ma To said; we have heard that already.
