A student once asked Zen Master Seung Sahn, “What is suffering?”
“Your question,” he answered.
Dae Soen Sa Nim did not beat around the bush. He got straight to the point: it was laser-beam Dharma.
My friend Homa, in Oslo, said about this: “This teaching by Dae Soen Sa Nim reminded me of Osho’s reply to a question I’d asked him once in Oregon. His response hit me hard: ‘You have to drop your answers,’ Osho said. ‘Drop them, and I will kill your questions. The day there is no question and no answer within you, and you are just sitting here empty — you have come home.'”
