Zarathud's Enlightenment

Before he became a hermit, Zarathud was a young Priest, and took great delight in making fools of his opponents in front of his followers.
      One day Zarathud took his students to a pleasant pasture and there he confronted The Sacred Chao while She was contentedly grazing.
      ``Tell me, you dumb beast,'' demanded the Priest in his commanding voice, ``why don't you do something worthwhile. What is your Purpose in Life, anyway?''
      Munching the tasty grass, The Sacred Chao replied ``MU'' (the Chinese ideogram for NO-THING).
      Upon hearing this, absolutely nobody was enlightened. Primarily because nobody could understand Chinese.
