Ch:Yaoshan She zhu zhong zhu. Lit. Yakusan's Shooting of the Great King of the Big Deers. A Zen ‘T dialogue between Yaoshan –òŽR (Jp: Yakuzan, 751-834) and a monk that uses the shooting of a deer king as a metaphor for a spiritual challenge between monks. The story, case 81 of the Biyanlu •ÉŒµ˜^ (Jp: HEKIGANROKU, 1300), begins with an unidentified monk asking Yaoshan, "How can one shoot the Great King of the Big deers?" Yaoshan replies, "Watch the arrow," while pretending to draw a bow. The monk falls to the floor, and, when Yaoshan pronounces him "dead," he runs away. Kanou Sanraku's Žë–ìŽRŠy (1590-1651) painting at Zougein ŽG‰Ø‰@ Kyoto, showing Yaoshan standing, an arrow, the monk fallen on the floor, and a deer, is a typical visualization of the story.
