Re: Looking ahead...(split from ZFI topic)

ok, not to repeat zen history, but maybe this: Setchō's Verse "The staff swallows the universe; He talks for naught of peach blossoms traveling on the waves, Success is not about grabbing the clouds and seizing the fog; Why must failure mean losing courage and spirit: It's all settled─did you hear? ...

Re: Looking ahead...(split from ZFI topic)

Is hitting people with sticks considered a personal attack? :rolling: :twothumbsup: maybe, in zen, it could be considered an unpersonalized attack? if someone else hits other people and not me, can i call it non-personal? if i hit myself with a stick, probably personal? .. thnx for the laugh seeker...

Yunmen Wenyan

I hope this is the right place for my question.
Yunmen is , was, will, be..one of the most important moments in chan/zen history...
Why are his words not used, explained, understood, and so on..
Would you please say, if you will, something about him, or anything you would about Yunmen?
Thank You
