Sound of One Koan

Zen_monkLet's face it. Zen is boring. You couldn't find a duller, more tedious practice than Zazen. The philosophy is dry and unexciting. It's amazing to me anyone reads this page at all… (From Sit down and shut up: "My name is Brad and I'm a Hardcore Zen Buddhist")

Zen Dialogue:

"Where are you going?"
"I am going wherever my feet go"

Zen stories to tell your neighbors: One day Banzan was walking through a market. He overheard a customer say to the butcher, "Give me the best piece of meat you have." "Everything in my shop is the best," replied the butcher. "You can not find any piece of meat that is not the best." At these words, Banzan was enlightened.
