Another Dabbling in Zen

 

01

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

02

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

03

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

04

The Master said: “The moon!”

05

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

06

 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.

09

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

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