Zen Den Friday
“The effort to ‘solve’ a koan is intended to exhaust the analytic intellect and the egoistic will, readying the mind to entertain an appropriate response on the intuitive level. Each such exercise constitutes both a communication of some aspect of Zen experience and a test of the novice’s competence” (Encyclopedia Britannica).
One of the most famous riddles is, “What is the sound of one hand clapping?”
If that hurts your brain too much this Friday morning, zen out, let go, and head over the falls with this Niagra Falls Zen Den from Explore.org.
