    When the World Honored one descended the platform, I closed the book and put it back on the shelf. 8)

    You mean: "I was immediately enlightened, closed the book, put it back on the shelf and returned to the market place."
    Damn you're a good student! :lol:

    Kind of like that play, Waiting for Godot ... the one where the unseen Godot is coming (or already there?), but never seems to arrive ...

    Act I

    Estragon, sitting on a low mound, is trying to take off his boot. He pulls at it with both hands, panting. He gives up, exhausted, rests, tries again. As before. Enter Vladimir.

    ESTRAGON:
    (giving up again). Nothing to be done.
    VLADIMIR:
    (advancing with short, stiff strides, legs wide apart). I'm beginning to come round to that opinion. All my life I've tried to put it from me, saying Vladimir, be reasonable, you haven't yet tried everything. And I resumed the struggle. (He broods, musing on the struggle. Turning to Estragon.) So there you are again.

    ...

    ESTRAGON:
    Charming spot. (He turns, advances to front, halts facing auditorium.) Inspiring prospects. (He turns to Vladimir.) Let's go.
    VLADIMIR:
    We can't.
    ESTRAGON:
    Why not?
    VLADIMIR:
    We're waiting for Godot.
    ESTRAGON:
    (despairingly). Ah! (Pause.) You're sure it was here?
    VLADIMIR:
    What?
    ESTRAGON:
    That we were to wait.
    VLADIMIR:
    He said by the tree. (They look at the tree.) Do you see any others?
    ESTRAGON:
    What is it?
    VLADIMIR:
    I don't know. A willow. ...
    A—. What are you insinuating? That we've come to the wrong place?
    ESTRAGON:
    He should be here.
    VLADIMIR:
    He didn't say for sure he'd come.
    ESTRAGON:
    And if he doesn't come?
    VLADIMIR:
    We'll come back tomorrow.
    ESTRAGON:
    And then the day after tomorrow.
    VLADIMIR:
    Possibly.
    ESTRAGON:
    And so on.
    VLADIMIR:
    The point is—
    ESTRAGON:
    Until he comes.
    VLADIMIR:
    You're merciless.
    ESTRAGON:
    We came here yesterday.
    VLADIMIR:
    Ah no, there you're mistaken.
    ESTRAGON:
    What did we do yesterday?
    VLADIMIR:
    What did we do yesterday?
    ESTRAGON:
    Yes.
    VLADIMIR:
    Why . . . (Angrily.) Nothing is certain when you're about.
    ESTRAGON:
    In my opinion we were here.
    VLADIMIR:
    (looking round). You recognize the place?
    ESTRAGON:
    I didn't say that.

    Godot has always been one of my favorites...I love reading stuff that doesn't make sense
    Thanks for the Sesame Street version...I'd not seen that and enjoyed it!

    “Estragon: We always find something, eh Didi, to give us the impression we exist?

    Vladimir: Yes, yes, we're magicians.”
    ? Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot

    I don't think I want to start the book now - waiting is becoming far more amusing and informative :wink:

    Thanks

    Just an ANNOUNCEMENT that our work with the Book Of Equanimity will begin THIS SATURDAY with my DHARMA TALK during our monthly Zazenkai for May.

    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4921

    That talk will look at incomplete or mistaken information and common misunderstandings about the Koans and Koan Practice, particularly among many Western students.

    The talk will be in preparation for our actual work with the individual Koans, commencing in a few days.

    Gassho, Jundo

    Could we jump in at any time with this or should we start from the beginning of the book with the first koan.

    Can one catch up on the timeless universe? Need it be ordered, and when does "just this" arrive?

    Hey, a Koan right there!

    Gassho, J

    Happy Birthday, by the way. Happy No-Birthday too!
