understanding is arising out of its failure to demystify existence. But
I don't see a similar understanding arising in the so-called religious

very much. That was there only sermon, the only message-- that
laugh. And they would not teach, they would simply create the
situation.

Then it happened that they became famous all over the


country- 'the three laughing monks'. The whole of China loved
them, respected them. Nobody had preached that way- that life must
be just laughter and nothing else. And they were not laughing at
anybody in particular but simply laughing as if they had understood
the cosmic joke. They spread so much joy all over China without
