Re: Zen 2006

The Emperor’s chief carpenter, Ch’ing, once made a music stand so perfect that all who saw it marveled. When Lu asked him to reveal the mystery of his art, Ch’ing demurred, saying: “No mystery, your Highness, though there is something. When I am about to make such a stand, I first reduce my mind to absolute quiet. Three days in this condition and I am oblivious to any reward to be gained. Five days, and I am oblivious to any fame to be acquired. Seven days, and I become unconscious of my four limbs and body. Then, with no thought of the Court in mind, all my skill concentrated and all disturbing elements gone, I go into the forest to search for a suitable tree. It contains the stand in my mind’s eye, and then I set to work.”

Chuang-Tzu

Re: Zen 2006

It is said that there are seventeen hundred koans. Actually, there are as many koans in life as there are individuals, and each individual’s life is nothing but koans.

Re: Zen 2006

How can you come to know yourself? Never by thinking, always by doing. Try to do your duty, and you’ll know right away what you amount to. And what is your duty? Whatever the day calls for.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

A monk asked Li-shan: “What is the meaning of Bodhidharma coming from the West?”

“There is no ‘what’ here,” said Li-shan.

“What is the reason?”

“Just because things are such as they are,” replied Li-shan.

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

The mind that is free from itself—why should it look within? This introspection taught by Buddha only increases the obstruction. Things are originally one; why then should we endeavor to untie them?

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

If you study Zen, you must really study it. If you become enlightened, it must be the real enlightenment. If you once see Bodhidharma’s beard, then know that you have at last “got it.” But when you explain what you saw, you have already lost it.

Commentary on the Famous Koan, “Why Has [the Bearded] Bodhidharma No Beard?”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

One day, while addressing a crowd, the popular Zen master Bankei was being heckled by a Nichiren Buddhist priest. The priest was yelling out, “I don’t understand a single word you’re saying!”

Bankei called out and said, “Come closer and I’ll explain it.”

The priest walked in the midst of the crowd. Bankei said, “No, come closer.”

The priest edged closer, and Bankei said, “No, closer still,” until finally the priest was right next to Bankei. And Bankei said: “Ah, look! How well you understand me!”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Yao-shan was sitting quietly in cross-legged meditation when a monk asked him: “In this immovable position, what are you thinking?”

“Thinking of that which is beyond thinking,” said Yao.

“How do you go on thinking that which is beyond thinking?” pressed the monk.

“By not-thinking.”

Re: Zen 2006 & 2007

Once a poor man was visiting his rich friend. The friend felt sorry for him, and after the poor man fell asleep, he secretly put a precious jewel in the man’s garment. After they parted, the poor man returned to his old life as a beggar, not knowing he owned this precious jewel. After some time the rich man ran into him, and expressed surprise that his friend was still begging. “I gave you a jewel,” the man said, “why did you not use it to make your life more comfortable?” The beggar protested, “You never gave me anything!” The friend reached into the garment and produced the jewel—Buddha nature is like this.

A monk asked Roso: “What is the wordless word?”

Roso replied with another question: “Where’s your mouth?”

The monk said: “I haven’t got one!”

“Then what do you eat with?” asked Roso.

The monk was silent.
