ZEN STORIES

A student asked Shunryu Suzuki:
“How much ‘I’ do we need?”

In Zen, the unity of Practice and Realization (satori) is taught. In other words, we do not attain the goal by means of practice; practice itself is the goal of realization, and the goal, realization, is at once practice.

Four monks decided to do two weeks of silent meditation. On the first night the candles flickered and went out.
