This Week’s Koan
Gateless Gate #8: “Keichu’s Wheel”
Getsuan said to this students:
“Keichu, the first wheel-maker of China, made two wheels of fifty spokes each. Now, suppose you removed the nave [hub] uniting the spokes. What would become of the wheel? And had Keichu done this could he be called the master wheel-maker?”
Mumon’s VerseWhen the hubless wheel turns, Master or no master can stop it. It turns above heaven and below earth, South, north, east and west.
