  When a monk came to say good bye to Chao-chou Tsung-shen (778-897), a brilliant Chinese Ch'an master.
Chao-chou asked:
-Where will you go?
The monk answered:
-Any place where I can learn Buddha dharma.
Chao-chou stood... continue...

vertical line I really am very new to all this, I have a freind who has been nudging me for a few years (I realise this now!) showing me Allan Watts videos which i found very fascinating but couldn't seem to grasp the complete concept until very recently when I was watching a movie someone made about meeting Eckhart Tolle and Wham it hit me, I became acutely aware of that voice in my head! it was a very profound experience. Since then I have been practicing finding the stillness between thoughts and watching my thoughts as they come. Finding it relatively simple to do when I am alone, but oh boy putting that concept into practice when I am surrounded by others...i need a lot more help and practice!
