"But," asked Vaccha persistently, "when one who has this emancipation of mind (freed from self) dies, where does he go, where is he reborn?
The Buddha replied:
"The word 'reborn' does not fit the case."
"Then he is not reborn?"
Hello everybody! Like most of you I'm just a little bit interested in zen. I've been exploring zen teaching and practice on my own for about two years now out, but by no means do I consider myself anything close to a real zen practicioner. That said, zen has taught me a lot about myself without even me knowing it. These past two years have mainly been of frustration and struggle. I feel like I've walked thousands of miles but only gotten as far as an inch! Anyways I wanted to share and discuss an insight I've had about zen with anyone who wants to discuss.
