    Lightbulb Zen Speaks - Cartoons of Zen Stories

    Hi all, I'm not too sure if this is the right place to post this, but I'd just like to show this very entertaining Chinese cartoon I know. It's basically very kiddy looking graphics and material detailing Zen stories with short explanations by the master monk character. Quite entertaining and illuminating.

    Presumably this is based on the wonderful books / comics by Tsai Chih Chung (Zen Speaks, the Tao Speaks, Zhuangzi Speaks, etc.). Many of them have been translated into English, although some are better translations than others. His charming line and spare style are delightful IMHO.

    I have only watch a half hour of these so far, and will watch more later ...

    ... but these are simply WONDROUSLY, STUPENDIFILLY INCREDIBUDDHALICIOUS!

    Thank you for introducing these Ben.

    I have a feeling that these will become a regular feature around here. Oh, what a wonderful example of placing Old Timeless Teachings in New Media Jars!

    Bunny,

    Be sure to turn on CC in the player so that you may see the captions.

    Gassho,

    Thank you for this! I think these are great. After 21 minutes I need a commercial break.

    Yes, these are truly wonderful and fun Zen stories and bits of Chinese Wisdom. I will be adding this to our library of recommended materials. Although it is in Chinese with subtitles, even my little daughter loves to watch with me. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE. I am watching in small bits.
