A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:
-When it is cold, hen would go up on a tree and duck down to water.

My name is Tenzen Metok or Christian (named after a Danish king). I took my refuge vows a few years ago and am seeking to enhance my religious practice. I took my refuge vows at a Tibetan Buddhist temple but feel a little closer to Zen Buddhism.
