A disciple went to his Guru asking for tips to attain enlightenment. The Guru advised, 'Take a Mala (rosary) and go up into the Himalayas and meditate.' The disciple went away.
Several months later, the Guru paid him a visit and asked, 'How do you like it up here in the snows?'
'Just fine, ' replied the disciple,
'And what about the weather? Don't you freeze?'
'As long as I have my mala and my chillum (bowl full of tobacco), I don't care how cold it is.'
'I am glad to hear it. Can I also have a chillum for muself right now,' asked the Guru, shivering with cold.
'Why not!' said the disciple. 'Mala! Would you bring us two Chillums?'
