A university professor visited the Japanese master Nan-in to inquire about Zen. The professor tried to impress the master with all his knowledge. Nan-in served his guest tea. He poured the professor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring. The professor watched the cup overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. “Stop! It is overflowing. No more will go in!” “Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full with idle thought. You must first empty your cup before I can show you Zen.”
