I'd like to share with you what I think is the best Koan I've ever come across. I'll include some of the notes and the Capping Phrase. Master P'ou and Grasshopper* were practicing in the Monastery garden one warm summer evening. Master P'ou kindly** inquired of his pupil "You seem greatly troubled by something, little Grasshopper***?" "Yes, Master.In the sutras it says that a buddha has a heart of perfect wisdom.Does that mean that he would cut farts of perfect odor?" Master P'ou said nothing in response. The only sound carried on the soft Summer Breeze was a faint etherial phtttpppt. Grasshopper resumed the counting of his breaths and before he could even reach two, he obtained a Great Enlightenment. *Annoying little suckup! Master was always WAY too kind to him. I would have disemboweled him with a splintery pair of chopsticks. ** He always WAS his FAVORITE. ***Yeah and if you squashed him under your foot,I bet the juice that came out would be just as green!! CAPPING PHRASE: Buttplugs need not be greased to be effective. MOST intimate.

I choose not to read zen books any more. I gave many away and sold the rest on ebay. Zatoichi is easier to understand and much more entertaining than Bankei or Dogen. test'; "> --------------------------------- Looking for last minute shopping deals? Find them fast with Yahoo! Search.
