This Week’s Koan

Book of Serenity #21
“Ungan Sweeps the Ground”

When Ungan was sweeping the ground, Dôgo said, “You are having a hard time!”

Ungan said, “You should know there is one who doesn’t have a hard time.”

Dôgo said, “If that’s true, you mean there is a second moon?”

Ungan held up his broom and said, “What number of moon is this?”

Dôgo was silent.

Gensha said, “That is precisely the second moon.”

Unmon said, “The servant greets the maid politely.”
