Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971), founder of Zen Center San Francisco and author of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, was known to discourage questions about enlightenment. Once, when pressed on the subject, he replied:
"What do you want to know for? You may not like it."
--Suzuki Roshi, Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, Spring 1997
Gotta be careful what I ask for, I just might get it!!
