After death

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

The emperor summoned the Zen master Gudo to his presence.
‘Gudo, I have heard it said that you are a man who understands everything,’ said the emperor. ‘I would like to know what happens to both the enlightened man and the sinner when they die?’
‘How should I know?’ asked Gudo.
‘Well, you’re an enlightened teacher, aren’t you?’
‘Yes, but I’m not a dead teacher!’
