Can someone drive my cart here? Drive my… (Drive the cart.) Yes, ask the Dharma guard to drive my cart to the front. OK? I will go from here. Ask the Dharma guard to drive my cart to the kitchen. (The basketball court.) The big kitchen. (The basketball court.) By the basketball court. OK. Thank you. No one plays basketball now, but it’s still called that. The kitchen. In the past... (It was for basketball.)

Long time ago, a few decades ago, that basketball court was built for the little monks. It was very useful. There was a little monk here. He was very small. He used to play a lot of basketball and grew very tall. Really tall. Two meters! He is from Taiwan, but he grew very tall and was exceptional. It’s useful. If you want to grow tall, set up basketball hoops at home. It’s too late for us. (Too late. We are old.) Forget it. It’s too late. Forget it. It’s for others. OK? See you next time.

Next week or next stop. Thank you. Wish you peace. (Thank You, Master.) (Love You.) Now we have this. It’s nice, yeah? It’s better than nothing, right? (Yes.) Yes.

You get peanuts from me, that’s all you get. Together, OK? (Thank You, Master.) Some more. (Thank You, Master.) Here. (Thank You, Master.) I don’t have a lot. It’s just, everybody, (Just take a couple.) one piece. (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) Here, together. Everybody.

Give the foreigners, the Westerners. (OK.) These are from Taiwan (Formosa). Organic. It grows around here. Oh, this… Oh, also this, can do. You take some and throw it. (OK, Master. Thank You.) Here you go. (Thank You, Master.) Take it. Why do you do that? Ah, eat it, eat it, eat it quick. (Master.) (Thank You, Master.)

Anything else? No. Everybody, one. (OK.) I’ll come back real quick, OK? I’ll come back soon. (Yes, Master.) I let them have time to prepare, and you settle down. I’ll come back.

Here, two. How many? (Here?) Oh, no. It’s not enough. They might fight. I will give to the working staff. Sorry. I wanted to buy more but didn’t have time. No time. These are vegetables and you can’t eat them right away. I bought these to make them happy. My kitchen can also use. They are all vegetables, right? Put them anywhere. Twelve is not enough. But, do you Dharma guards all have? Take some symbolically. (OK.)

I will come back down quickly. You handle first. Once you are ready, go up and tell the other Dharma guards and ask them to inform me. (OK.) Thank you very much.

There is another session. It’s too late for you this way, too late for you the Dharma guards. I’ll work by myself. You can go home, in case you are afraid of your wife and children making noise. If you need to go home, please go. Go down together and eat something if there is. Then go home. The stuff I just bought. Ah? (OK.) Eat together, and then go home. Whoever can stay, then stay. If you can’t, just go. I won’t blame you. It’s no need. There are many people. Who dares to do anything to me? They are very fierce. Even I am afraid of them.

OK. Yeah. Another session. All Taiwanese (Formosans). (Hallo, Master!) Ha! All Taiwanese (Formosans). So noisy! Thank you. Are you cold sitting like that? (It’s fine.) (Not cold.) Is it OK? Yeah, thank you very much for your love. Enough. Enough. Thank you.

Have you ever eaten this before? (Yes, Master.) You did? (Yes.) Ah! (Thank You.) The Westerners, anybody who has not eaten this before? You? (Not yet.) Oh! You two share. No, no, no, no, no! You ate this in your mother’s stomach already. You two. OK? You two share. Only Westerners, they don’t know these things. Anyone? The Westerners. Have not eaten this before? (This one, not.) You have not? OK. You like it or you have not eaten? (I love this one.) “I love,” then you have eaten already. OK, never mind, give it to you. (Really?) You’re from far away, from Australia. (Thank You.) And this one, ah no, I have just a little bit. Everybody has like half or something. The Westerners only. I bought it outside. (Thank You, Master.) OK, you are welcome. Together. Everybody, one piece.

And you two share that precious fruit. They call it sugar apple here in Taiwan (Formosa). Sugar apple means Shakyamuni. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, because this one looks like the top of the head, Shakyamuni Buddha had them when He was alive, so they call it sugar apple. So you’re eating the Buddha’s hair. Good luck. (Good luck.) I thought you Westerners haven’t seen those things, and haven’t eaten, so I give to you. I don’t have a lot. That’s for me. I give it to you.

Oh! So many people come here again. How come? I am talking about foreigners only. (Taiwan [Formosa].) Taiwanese (Formosans) are OK, of course. But why so many? Don’t you go home? Don’t eat and don’t go home?

My God. Behind you also, and then on the side. Here, here, oh, here also.
