Zen Koans

— communication between the Master and apprentice. translated by my lifelong friend, Chiung-Ju

# “Please make my heart return to tranquility?”
“Please bring your heart here, I will make your heart return to tranquility.”

# “What is free in a moment”
“Who is tying you?!”

# “What is understanding?”
“Buddha was never confused.”

# “Where is the clean-pure land’s whereabouts?”
“Who has befouled you?”
