When is a student ready for koan practice? How do you begin koan practice?

Any student who has realized the Dharma can start right away. I do not need to name these students, they know by themselves. The proof of realization is only needed when the students starts to teach themselves. If a student has experienced the wisdom of the Buddha, then for the first time true guidance is possible.
