Hehhee, great story, thank you! I love the Lama's answer! That is a true Zen (tm) answer. It's just an orange (with all with buddha nature), that's all, not a trick question. I bet Master Seung Sahn was quite happy with Lama's answer when Lama didn't try to act like "Master".

Like in some video one of Sahn's students were in dokusan and Sahn asked a koan something like "where do you go after death?" A student tried to answer something ignorant like "blue sky" or something. Sahn laughed compassionately and told her that "you'll go to the coffin!" Or something like that. :)

Just as it is. Taming the ox.

Thank you for your post!

With palms together,
