One day Yao-shan Wei-yen (750-834), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an master, was asked by the host of the monastery to give his sermon to the assembly who for a long while was expecting his teaching. Yao-shan said: "Strike the bell."
Guess we`ll never know unless we have Japanese cultural background and spoke the language while participating in the discussion. But we still have this loosely based conversation about whether a dog have Buddha nature or not! The all important question that has riddled mankind since dawn of time! We go into space, and have all kinds of stuff. But we still do not know the BIG question. Do dogs have Buddha nature or not??
I`ll tell you my friend, I`ve solved that question!.. But be warned!.. A new one will raise in the after math.. Cats!.. Did not think of they did you? Or baby craving Dingos?! Huh? Then we get nearer the important solution, because as I did my own personal investigation on this crucial matter, digging trough public archives, sitting day and night googling, then I finally discovered something amazing. And I suddenly saw the whole picture, how this year old conversation fitted so nicely into my newly found vision. I was totally flabbergasted! After all these years of pondering. I immediately went to zenforum to share this amazing revelation when I stumbled upon this sex tread. And, you know, I started getting associations, just do a little porn surfing first. And afterwards I got soo sleepy, and I forgot the whole thing by next morning and wrote this rabble instead. Sorry.
