I came across this story by my friend who is a writer living in New York. It begins:

“One afternoon, during my lunch break, I happened upon a young woman at the corner of 85th and Fifth Avenue who was handing out literature for the Diamond Sutra Society of Flushing, Queens. She was dressed in traditional Korean costume, a glittering jewel in the searing July sun. She handed me a pamphlet which I accepted more out of courtesy than any compelling interest.
“May this book help you find the truth,” she told me.
I asked, in a knee-jerk way, “Of what?”
“Of everything,” she said.
