Title: A koan
Post by: Nyborj the Priest on June 09, 2020, 06:03:00 pm
Daibai said to Baso, “What’s with all those koans where the novice asks the master for wisdom and the master is like ‘Wash your bowl’ or something mundane, and hearing this, the novice was enlightened?”
Hearing this, Baso was enlightened.
Daibai said, “See what I mean? What I said wasn’t enlightening at all.”
Baso was even more enlightened.
Daibai said, “Stop i–“
SO ENLIGHTENED.

A couple more that I made up Eris downloaded to my pineal gland recently:


Joshu asked Nansen, "If Zen monks are so serene, how come half the koans end with them hitting each other with sticks?"
Nansen hit him with a stick.


One hand that claps
Makes such a din
I had to put
One earplug in.

To clarify, I was referencing the "CLEAN YOUR BOWL" amazingness, not the author.
