One day the students noticed that the master was extremely focused. He watches them with great attention as they exercise, meditate, and perform their daily duties. After a few days, over an evening meal, one of the students dared to ask:
- Master, for the last few days you have been watching us as if you were looking for something.
- Yes, I am looking for someone who would be the same as me - replied the master.
- Someone like you? The student said, and it became completely quiet in the room.
- What for?
- Because I'm old now and I would like to have a successor to whom I will pass all my secret tricks, dodges, and strikes.
