Foreword by Ruben L.F. Habito
Part One: The Three Jewels
What is Kongen, the origin of Mu?
What is the Sound of One Hand?
Part Two: The Miscellaneous Koans
Stop the sound of the distant temple bell.
Put out the fire a thousand miles away.
Stop the boat sailing by out on the open sea.
Save a ghost.
Move a mountain.
Count the number of stars in the heavens.
In a well that has not been dug…
Slowly I wade in a brook…
In the sea of Ise…
With empty hands I take hold of the plow…
In order to be worthy as a Zen student…
The leaves of the lotus are round…
On Mount Godai a cloud is cooking rice…
A thousand mountains are covered with snow…
