Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.

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.
