Upagupta

The fourth patriarch was the Venérable Upagupta. He attended Sanavasa for three years and then shaved his head and became a monk. Once, the Venerable asked him, "Did you make your home departure physically or in spirit?" The master replied, "Truly, I made my home departure physically" The Venerable said, "How can the Wondrous Dharma of the Buddhas have anything to do with body or mind?" On hearing this, the master was greatly awakened.
