New Interpretation of Chinese Legend "Turning An Iron Rod To A Needle"

One day there was a mother who taught her son.

"Perseverance is the foundation of success. Whatever may be accomplished as long as you are really keen to do it."

"Provided that you are diligent, an iron rod can be ground down to become a embroidery needle."

Twenty years later...

"Look ! The iron rod become a needle now. This proves that as long as you have perseverance, no ambitious goals that can not be achieved."


"Mother, you devote your precious youth, but mother only gets a small needle."

There is nothing wrong with turning a iron rod to a needle...but a small yield for a large investment is not commensurate.


From Heart Sutra, Illustrated & interpreted by Tsai Chih Chung
