this is so zen!

While reading the story, I picture kungfu kid's master telling his student off with eyes half open, sitting on a meditation mat, legs crossed and all, giving his answer, "twenty years!!"  :o

My view on this:
when it comes to realization, the higher our desire, the harder it is for us to gain the realization. This is because this desire is a form of attachment to the 'realization', which present itself as obstacles. The more the student 'want' it, the more obstacles (inner and outer) he will face. Hence the guru's answers.
Down with the BAN!!!
