One day Liriope met with Meme. Liriope wanted to prove that she was the superior person.
As their conversation drew on, she asked Meme, “Meme, do you know what I think of you?”
Meme replied, “I don’t know what you think of me. You are entitled to have your opinion.”
Liriope smirked and said, “Well, I will tell you what I think anyway. In my eyes, you are just like a pile of dung!”
Meme simply smiled and stayed quiet.
Seeing that her insult had not effected Meme, she asked curiously, “And what do you think of me?”
Meme said, “In my eyes, you are just like the Buddha.”
Hearing this, Liriope left happily and bragged to another friend about the incident.
Her friend said to Liriope, “Liriope, you have much to learn. When a person has a heart like a pile of dung, she sees everyone in that light. Meme has the heart of the Buddha, and that is why in her eyes, everyone, including you, looks like the Buddha!”
