      On the question of his own Enlightenment the Master
      always remained reticent, even though the disciples
      tried every means to get him to talk.

      All the information they had on this subject was what
      the Master once said to his youngest son who wanted
      to know what his father felt when he became Enlightened.

      The answer was:

      "A fool."

      When the boy asked why, the Master had replied,
      "Well, son, it was like going to great pains to
      break into a house by climbing a ladder and smashing
      a window and then realizing later that the door of
      the house was open."
