A Gateless Gate Koan by Mumon Ekai

Thought of the Day:

“Every day Zuigan used to call out to himself, "Master!" and then he answered himself, "Yes, Sir!" And he added, "Awake, Awake!" and then answered, "Yes, Sir! Yes, Sir!"

"From now onwards, do not be deceived by others!" "No, Sir! I will not, Sir!"

— Mumon Ekai, The Gateless Gate
