Kill all discursive thinking, one female German zen master (who had the
Inka of a well-known Japanese Zen master), sugggested to me in a sesshin
Dokusan some three decades ago.


PS: She was as strict as a Prussian General, and commanded us not to
move at all - even when our noses were dripping. (Sit, Fido, sit! ;-))
