Description: Koans are anecdotes from the lives of enlightened masters. The focus of this talk is a koan that conveys the mind of Master Unmon. In Case 78, a monk asks Unmon what it means to “go beyond Buddha and the ancestors” — a quote that the monk has read. Unmon responds simply: “Rice cake.” The talk explores the meaning of the monk’s question, and the dynamic power of Unmon’s curt yet all-encompassing response.
