echo of a dialogue

I remember reading a Zen story of a teacher/monk who lies dying, and, as one of his students comes to him, says, “I don’t want to die….” –  the student replies: “Thank you for your service.”

I  feel the relief in my bones about an in-depth dialogue that goes far beyond picking up what the other person has not said – creating an echo round the world.
