• ...tells the story of a hermit whom an inopportune visitor asked for an object that was in his cell.
  • The hermit had to go to find the object. 
  • But upon entering, forgot what it was, because the image of external things could not be recorded in his mind. 
  • Went forth and asked the visitor will repeat what he wanted. He renewed the request. 
  • The lonely came back in, but before taking the object, he had already forgotten what it was. 
  • After many attempts, he was forced to tell the inopportune.
    -Enter yourself and find what you want, because I can not keep this image enough to do what you ask.
