Daikan Eno, patriarch of Master Kosen 's zen buddhism lineage

Daikan Eno

The thirty-third patriarch, [China's Sixth Patriarch,] was Zen Master Ta-chien [Hui-neng]. He worked in the rice-hulling shed at Huangmei. Once, Zen Master Ta-man [Hung-jen] entered the shed and asked, "Is the rice white yet?" The master answered, "It's white, but it hasn't been sifted yet." Ta-man struck the mortar three times with his staff. The master shook the sifting basket three times and entered the Patriarch's room.
