Thread: in case this was missed by any1

    in case this was missed by any1

    Master Gudo Nishijima caught his students arguing over who owned a Madonna CD. He said, "If any of you can say a turning word, I will give you the CD." No one could and Gudo broke the CD into pieces.

    That evening Brad Warner visited Master Gudo Nishijima's dojo and heard what had happened. He put on a cone bra and walked out.

    "If you had been here," Gudo declared, "you would have saved the Madonna CD."

    If I were there, I'll simply answer it...."That Madona CD is yours, Sir..."

    It is nice to hear a Zen story that involves the breaking of CDs rather than cats.

    ...those Masters must have went through so many cats, especially if people like me were around who learn through repition. :wink:
