“What is the teaching that goes beyond what the buddhas and ancestors taught?”
Yunmen replies, “Cake.”
—Blue Cliff Record Case 77
You get the picture: Yunmen is seated at tea time, a low table before him. On the table there is a teapot, cups and a small plate of rice cakes. Between sips of tea, a student says to him, “What is the teaching that goes beyond the buddhas and ancestors?
Rather than give a detailed answer replete with explanations, metaphysics and theories, Yunmen eschews the esoteric, the special, and turns the student’s attention to the right here, a lowly rice cake.
Come join us Thursdays, for koan meditation, a dharma talk, and conversation. Register to participate. All are welcome.
I hope you will join us.
—David Parks Roshi, Director of Bluegrass Zen
