Regular meditation in Buddhism Temple
"A roof tile can never be a mirror no matter how long or how many times you grind it." This is interesting statement. The teacher is saying that meditation does not help to reach ultimate mind status. Then why the meditation? There is no correct answer for this kind of Zen questions. My interpretation is that instead of thinking about how long or how many times of meditation, you should consider to change yourself to be mirror material from a roof tile. And the meditation is not that method. What is more important is you find mirror material to grind to be the mirror. We sometimes make mistake which is more important find the mirror material or grinding it, don't we?
The story continued. "The teacher asked the student priest "When your ox carriage stopped which you whip, the cow or carriage?"
