Wealthy patrons invited Ikkyu to a banquet. Ikkyu arrived dressed in his beggar's robes.

The host, not recognizing him, chased him away.

Ikkyu went home, changed into his ceremonial robe of purple brocade, and returned.

With great respect, he was received into the banquet room.

There, he put his robe on the cushion, saying:

1052787106-1

"I expect you invited the robe since you showed me away a little while ago," and then proceeded to leave the banquet.
