Does name of the organization One Drop Zen a relation with the term mottainai (too good for me)? How name of the organization affects to the principles or rules of sangha?

Zen uses anything as a guidance to awakening. "Joshu´s dog", "Shusan's staff" - there is no end to these. Zen uses any aspect of our daily life, because all is for our awakening - that seems like a story of the past. Zen does not follow such "free time ideas". Who is seeing? Who is alive? Who is asking? Who is confused? Who is asking a question about one drop of water? Carefully open your own seeing eye.
