    Gate Ninety-six
    Read the following, place it in your heart and sleep on it. Then, tomorrow, live it until evening when you can leave a brief comment on what you may have received during the process.

    To teach and guide living beings is a gate of Dharma illumination;for we ourselves neither indulge pleasures nor become tired.

    To teach and guide living beings : The act of sharing knowledge.

    By ôDharma Gateö, We mean a teaching or practice that can lead to spiritual growth: some kind of positive outcome in terms of our practice. A way to approach the truth.

    Koan:
    "What do we teach? We teach the Dharma, living praj˝ā pāramitā.
    How do we teach? We teach by our practice, living praj˝ā pāramitā.
    Where do we teach? We teach in every place, right here, now, living praj˝ā pāramitā.
    When do we teach? We teach whenever we are engaged in right thought, right words, and right actions, living praj˝ā pāramitā.
    Why do we teach? We teach to save all sentient beings, living praj˝ā pāramitā.
    Who do we teach? We teach ourselves, to attain the enlightened way, living praj˝ā pāramitā.."
