Case 12 of Mumonkan for a few weeks now. Feel it is a very strong practice on and off the cushion. For the first time I have the slightest idea what I am doing. I simply have no idea. This hasn't been a problem. In fact it is a place I truly enjoy being. Zero idea. Anything to watch out for?

There is no meaning in just enjoying this. The koans are about life and death. It is like you are sitting on a sofa, eating soft ice cream, and watching a crime on TV saying: "oh, how terrible this is." This is the truth of a child.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
