    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Dharma

    Thought I'd share some of my teacher's words every once and a while.

    This evening he was describing a koan that used three gates as an imagery. One of the students spoke up.

    Student: Do the three gates represent body, mind, and spirit?
    Seunim: You are far away.
    Student: Aren't there eight gates?
    Seunim: The ninth gate is "Why don't you suck a fart out of my ass?"

    Later this evening, he went on to describe the words in a koan as being like "gunsmoke", and saying that we must penetrate through to the heart of the gunman.

    I'm gonna use "Heart of the Gunman" for a book title. It just sounds cool.

    Oh, and I just posted some stuff about "Bodhidharma" in this thread. Basically, a kung-fu instructor said that the guy invented all Martial Arts.

    Fucker. Yes I'm due, especially considering my family history. The way I look at it, I don't care if I die, NO ONE's sticking a six foot plus metal tube up my ass. That's not my bag, baby.

    And now Der's thread is closer to the true Dharma than ever.
    Shut the hell up and train.
