Which way to Nirvana

 

O great Guru, which way to Nirvana?

 

Well! you go down the road until you cant go no more,

Then you turn right,

then left,

then go up the hill,

turn right again,

left, right.

 

After ten minutes of precise instructions the disciple asked the Guru to stop.

 

O Guru! so many instructions, I feel I will never get it all correct!

Is there any other way to Nirvana?

 

O yes! just follow your heart, it will take you straight there.
