Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

when it blows,
how noisy
the mountain wind!
but when it blows not,
where will it have gone?

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Tung-kuo Tzu asked Chuang-tzu: “What is the Way? Where is it?”

“It is everywhere,” replied Chuang-tzu.

Tung-kuo Tzu said, “It will not do unless you are more specific.”

“It is in the ant,” said Chuang-tzu.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One day a farmer’s horse ran away. That evening his neighbors gathered around to commiserate with the farmer over such bad luck. The farmer said, “May be.” The next day the horse returned, followed by six wild horses. The neighbors couldn’t believe the farmer’s sudden good luck. The farmer said, “May be.” The next day, while trying to ride one of the wild horses, the farmer’s son was thrown and broke his leg. The neighbors again commiserated over the farmer’s bad luck, but all he said was, “May be.” The day after that, army officers came through the village conscripting the oldest sons, but the farmer’s son was rejected because of his broken leg. When the neighbors came to say how fortunate everything turned out, the farmer said, “May be.”

Zen conquers the dragon of delusion.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

The merit of [the cock’s] strain is in its freedom from all plaintiveness. The singer can easily move us to tears or laughter, but where is he who can excite in us a pure morning joy? When, in doleful dumps, breaking the awful stillness of our wooden sidewalk on a Sunday, or, perchance, a watcher in the house of mourning, I hear a cockerel crow far or near, I think to myself, “There is one of us well, at any rate”—and with a sudden rush return to my senses.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Hua-lin was asked by his teacher, Shih-tou: “Are you a Zen monk or an ordinary one?”

“I am a Zen monk,” answered Hua-lin.

“What is Zen?” asked Shih-tou.

“Raising the eyebrows, moving the eyes.”

“Bring your original form forward and let me see,” said Shih-tou. “I have no use for the raising of the eyebrows or the moving of the eyes.”

“Oh, Master, do away with your raising the eyebrows and moving the eyes, and see me where I am.”

“They are done away with.”

“Then the presentation is over,” said Hua-lin.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

To attain Zen enlightenment, it is not necessary to give up family life, quit your job, become a vegetarian, practice asceticism and flee to a quiet place, or go into a ghost cave of dead Zen to entertain subjective imaginings.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Te-ch’ien was known as the boatman, for he lived on a little ferry. One day the monk Chan-hui came to pay his respects. The boatman asked what monastery Chan stayed at.

“No monastery,” said Chan. “The place I stay at no one knows.”

“What does it look like?” asked the boatman.

“As far as our sight extends, I see nothing comparable to it.”

“Where did you learn to say that?” asked the boatman.

“It is beyond the reach of ears and eyes,” said Chan.

The boatman laughed and said, “However fine your philosophy, it serves you no better than the post to which your donkey is tied.” When Chan was about to open his mouth, the boatman pushed him into the water, and Chan had an immediate satori.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Hyakujo wished to send a monk to open a new monastery. He told his pupils that whoever answered a question most ably would be appointed. Placing a water vase on the ground, he asked: “Who can say what this is without calling its name?”

The chief monk said: “No one can call it a wooden shoe.”

Isan, the cooking monk, tipped over the vase with his foot and left.

Hyakujo smiled and said: “The chief monk loses.” And Isan became the master of the new monastery.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Hogen studied with Keishin Zenji.

Once Keishin asked him: “Where are you going?”

“I’m making an aimless pilgrimage,” replied Hogen.

“What is the matter of your pilgrimage?”

“I don’t know.”

“Not knowing is the most intimate,” said Keishin. At that moment Hogen attained great enlightenment.

the shore, one may assume that the
shore is moving.
But watching the boat directly, one
knows that it is the boat that moves.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

A Zen master explained that before the study of Zen, mountains are mountains and rivers are rivers; then during the study of Zen, mountains are no longer mountains and rivers are no longer rivers; but that when the study of Zen is completed, mountains are once again mountains and rivers are again rivers.

“Well, if that is the case,” replied the student, “then there is no difference between the ordinary man and the enlightened man.”

“Very true,” said the master. “There is no difference, really. The only thing is, the enlightened man is six inches off the ground.”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

A fisherman until he was thirty, Master Gensha entered Seppo’s monastery for two years and then decided to leave. As he was walking along the road, he stubbed his toe on a rock and injured it badly, and screamed out in pain. Then suddenly he thought, where does pain come from? In a flash he had deep enlightenment. He returned to Seppo’s monastery, and Seppo challenged him: “What are you doing here? You’re supposed to have gone.”

Gensha famously replied: “Bodhidharma never came to China: the Second Ancestor never left India. Bodhidharma and all the ancestors are right here with me!”

Seppo was overjoyed at his student’s achievement.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

If one could understand a flower as it has its being in God—this would be a higher thing than the whole world!

The wild geese do not intend to cast their reflection. The water has no mind to receive their image.

. . . and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden croft,
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Tung-shan once visited Hui-ch’ao, who asked him: “You are not on pilgrimage. What makes you come here for instruction?”

“I have an uneasy mind, and no power over it. That is why I need to see you.”

Hui-ch’ao called out Tung-shan’s personal name: “Oh, Liang-chieh?”

“Yes, Master?” replied Tung-shan.

“What is that?” asked Hui.

Tung-shan uttered not a word.

Later Hui said: “A magnificent Buddha . . . unfortunately, he emits no light.”

If your actions are sloppy, your understanding is sloppy, your life is sloppy, and everything is sloppy.

I’ve seen Plato’s cups and tables, but not his cupness and tableness.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One thought follows another without interruption. But if you allow these thoughts to link up to a chain, you put yourself in bondage.
