Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you

This Week’s Koan

Book of Serenity #38
“Rinzai’s Person of No Rank”

Rinzai instructed his assembly and said, “There is one true person of no rank, always coming out and going in through the gates of your face. Beginners who have not yet witnessed that, look! look!”

Then a monk came out and asked, “What is the one true person of no rank?”

Rinzai descended from the rostrum and grabbed him. The monk hesitated.

Rinzai pushed him away and said, “The true person of no rank — what a shit-stick you are!”
