In the middle of a zen dilemma when every answer to questions about zen always are pointing at new questions in an endless line what reason is there for asking questions?

It is the true development to have the last question disappear. But to say at the beginning of ones path, that it will end at a no question place, is not the way to go about it - we actually have to walk it and go through this process.
Questions are openings to new aspects and parts of the mystery of life and death, so it is natural for questions to keep coming up. When your mind becomes quieter and opens up, we start to see things more simple, more direct. Everything becomes our own question, becomes very close to us. And we can experience it directly, becoming one with the changing scenery.

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