Sosan: satori

There was a practitioner who approached Sosan, the third patriarch.

Sosan told him:

"Close your eyes and come backwards"

The practitioner suddenly reached Satori.

His eye opened.

He went away walking backwards.

Sosan told him:

"Now you can show others the art of reversal."

That practitioner would later become the fourth patriarch.
