Western Koan — Case #57: Zhaozhou’s Greatest Way Isn’t Difficult

A student asked Zhaozhou, “'The greatest way is not difficult if you don’t pick and choose.’ What is not picking and choosing?”  Zhaozhou said, “‘Above the heavens, below the heavens, I am alone and honored.’" “But that’s still picking and choosing.”“Idiot! Where’s the picking and choosing?”

Feel free to attend any or all sessions in the Eastern and Western Temples.
