The coin lost in the river is found in the river. —Yunmen, PZI Miscellaneous Koans, Case 64
Recently, I was looking for a pair of scissors that I had just used and put down, which had mysteriously disappeared, though I had not moved. I found the scissors where I left them, right in front of me. It was at that moment that the koan about the coin lost in the river came and paid me a visit.
The coin lost in the river was Yunmen’s response to the question, “What is ‘meditating and seeing things clearly’?” Rather than a description of something static, Yunmen gives a description of a process. That is what it is like when you see things clearly, you don’t see “things,” you see processes. Everything is a verb.
Join us for a koan, meditation, dharma talk, & conversation. All are welcome. Register to participate.
