Once upon a time, there was a Monkey King who created havoc and angered Buddha. The monkey escaped to the far corner of the universe. When he looked up, he saw the giant eyes of the Buddha beyond the mountains. He realized that he had merely been running in the palm of the Buddha. "Buddha's Palm" is the Chinese name for cactus. Its reach is infinite.
