Another Dabbling in Zen

Another Dabbling in Zen

A monk asked Fa-yen: “As for the finger I will not ask about it. But what is the moon?”

The Master said: “Where is the finger that you don’t ask about?”

So the monk asked: “As for the moon, I will not ask about it. But what is the finger?”

The Master said: “The moon!”

The monk challenged him: “I asked about the finger. Why did you answer, ‘the moon’?”

The Master replied: “Because you asked about the finger.”


Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever 

you are doing. This is the ultimate.


“What is the Tao?” a monk asked.

“It is right in front of your nose!” the Master answered.

“So why can’t I see it?” the monk continued.

“Your Me is in the way,” the Master answered.
