The following three comic pages are an English translation of author Suen Wai Kwan’s retelling of “The Monk with the Flowers”. In the story, a monk requests to learn the truth of the universe from the Buddha, who asks the man to let go. After putting down his flowers as well as separating his palms, the Buddha still requests that the monk let go. But of what?
