  One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

Weird .. very weird.

I came across in some Zen Forum that there is a guy who was talking very often in many topics in Zen - in many subjects. He seemed to be very authoritative and knows a lot about Zen.

But then he put a topic in which he admitted he is very confused about breath counting in zazen..

If it is true ... it is very strange to me..

So does this mean this is the quality of talks in Zen Forums?

vertical line I read something similiar to this once, when the student complained he could not grasp meditation, his master said, "When you are meditating rest, and when you are resting meditate"

vertical line You have to admit that breath counting, like sheep counting, can be exiting.
