Serve

Student Q: Docho Roshi, I serve you some ferns in your third bowl. Has anything special been given or anything particular been received? Is it possible to give and take?

SR: At mealtime. In third bowl?

Student Q: Third bowl.

SR: Uh-huh. Yeah.

Student Q: What has transpired between us then?

SR: Between us? I feel as if entire-- your entire being were served too -- that is not anymore food.
