Zen understanding?


While I was at UCLA, D.T.Suzuki (the famous Zen scholar, writer, master, etc) came to visit. They set up the Regents auditorium for him. So we were all there, the audience all excited, and out came the head of the Oriental department. The audience all quited down. The Head introduced “Here is D.T.Suzuki, world class Zen scholar, writer, master, etc.. Here he is!”

We all sat in silence. This little guy comes out to the mike. Adjusts a pair of Glasses. This is him, we’ve seen pictures of him before, but he looks smaller and etc. He reaches out and taps the mike.

A hollow ping sounds through the hall. He says “Zen Buddhism, Very hard understand, Thank you” and walks off stage…
