"Layman Pang, a basket maker, stumbled and fell into a ditch. Seeing this, his daughter, without another thought, lept into the ditch. "What are you doing?' "I'm helping daddy!'...'Well then daughter, its a good thing no one say you'"
WiG is sitting with this this week. Last week, we played a very small game. We sat, and as people sat, the koan was spoken into the room. People were encouraged to notice thoughts, and sensations, and anything entering into their awareness, and then to climb into the ditch with it.

“A Course on Koans” is the delusion-riddled work of Chris Kufu (“Wind in the Void”) Wilson, who began practicing Zen in 1967. He regards Taizan Maezumi, Robert Aitken, and David Weinstein as his root teachers. Each of them pecked at his shell until he “completed” the never-ending koan curriculum of the Harada-Yasutani lineage.
