My sister, who is a priestess and teacher at Great Vow Zen Monastery; wrote to me with an intriguing project. Alison's sect of Zen, the Rinkai sect, emphasizes koan as a means to contemplate the Way. Her teacher is particularly fond of koans, and she herself is fond of them. But what if the student were to ask questions of the master?
She is writing a book of questions for a Zen master. So. If you were sitting with an enlightened Zen master, and could ask one question -
What would that question be?
I'll pass your questions along to her. If you'd like proper attribution, include your real name (or email it to me privately at davy dot krieger $$$**at))*+( gmail DOT com )
