One day when P'ang layman (740-808)was selling bamboo baskets at the market place of Hung-chou. Seeing a monk begging alms, he took out a cash and said:
-Can you tell me how to appreciate alms?
The monk had nothing to say.

just looked at another Zen forum site (first time ever) and it sure did seem stuffy and closed, almost like a church of doctrine. I think maybe this is what others have been talking about. ??
i sure some people will respond well to that type of thing so it has its purpose i guess.
