here u go again.
such an old joke, but a total miss.
MOO!
really?
if you went to study with a master,
would your answer to the first case of the mumonkan be:
moo!
?
but nice you to bring it up,
so i can repeat what has been repeated a zillion of times:
Mumon's Comment:
For the pursuit of Zen, you must pass through the barriers (gates) set up by the Zen masters. To attain his mysterious awareness one must completely uproot all the normal workings of one's mind. If you do not pass through the barriers, nor uproot the normal workings of your mind, whatever you do and whatever you think is a tangle of ghost. Now what are the barriers? This one word "Mu" is the sole barrier. This is why it is called the Gateless Gate of Zen. The one who passes through this barrier shall meet with Joshu face to face and also see with the same eyes, hear with the same ears and walk together in the long train of the patriarchs. Wouldn't that be pleasant?

Would you like to pass through this barrier? Then concentrate your whole body, with its 360 bones and joints, and 84,000 hair follicles, into this question of what "Mu" is; day and night, without ceasing, hold it before you. It is neither nothingness, nor its relative "not" of "is" and "is not." It must be like gulping a hot iron ball that you can neither swallow nor spit out.

Then, all the useless knowledge you have diligently learned till now is thrown away. As a fruit ripening in season, your internality and externality spontaneously become one. As with a mute man who had had a dream, you know it for sure and yet cannot say it. Indeed your ego-shell suddenly is crushed, you can shake heaven and earth. Just as with getting ahold of a great sword of a general, when you meet Buddha you will kill Buddha. A master of Zen? You will kill him, too. As you stand on the brink of life and death, you are absolutely free. You can enter any world as if it were your own playground. How do you concentrate on this Mu? Pour every ounce of your entire energy into it and do not give up, then a torch of truth will illuminate the entire universe.

Has a dog the Buddha nature?
This is a matter of life and death.
If you wonder whether a dog has it or not,
You certainly lose your body and life!

..then a torch of truth will illuminate the entire universe
thanks for the reminder

Mu!

Actually i was thinking this at the moment;

i guess there are three kinds of people or sages
1-wises
They need a signal or sign before to find the truth,
2-The Prophets
That's just enough for them only to see, that's to see the truth,
3-the over mind,
He has no enemy at all.Actually he illuminate the truth.no infront but better at the back of the truth.

..just thinking loudly

is it true?

Not my decision buddy. I just quoted one of this website's Terms of Service to you, and provided the link so you could see the context. Tap the link, go to #7, and then you will understand.

But if I could help you decide, for your own benefit, I would suggest not to post trollish or other threads that could be interpreted to mock or insult zen.

Yes indeed. And you will notice that others may join in, which means there is still interest and value in doing so.There is a treasure trove of ideas in the Zen section (vs. the Lounge section) that can enrich and help others, just waiting to be reexamined, especially by new or beginning students. Why don't you see if you can find a thread that is of interest, and pose a few well-considered questions? This would be in line with the owner's wish that this be a group of dharma friends dedicated to exploring zen topics, in good faith.

To me, your English usage is unintelligible, and perhaps your thoughts also are jumbled. I wouldn't want to try to guess what you meant.

but will treat you as a cub.

The way is bumpy these days, slippery and mixed.
Also noisy.For a few months or so that is so!
It is hard to focus on a single object.
Hard days to do zen.Fortitude! larry
