This Week’s Koan

Gateless Gate #11
Joshu Sees the Hermits

Joshu went to a hermit’s cottage and asked, “Is the master in? Is the master in?”

The hermit raised his fist.

Joshu said, “The water is too shallow to anchor here,” and he went away.

Coming to another hermit’s cottage, he asked again, “Is the master in? Is the master in?”

This hermit, too, raised his fist.

Joshu said, “Free to give, free to take, free to kill, free to save,” and he made a deep bow.
