Mu! (aka 'Wuf')




I asked my dog if he had Buddha Nature.

He licked his nose and sighed heavily.

Is there any question to this meaning?

ZL,

Thanks for stopping by. This is based on a true story. Just ask my dog, Baker.

It's a great one. I've been reading blogs and passing on things I've read to friends. Your story there is an important/relevant one I'd say. The barriers/limitations of language and in how we relate to everything(relationships) is quite apparent when talking to our animal friends. :)

My root teacher, Zen Master Seung Sahn, used to say, "Dog understands dog's job. Cat understands cat's job. Only human being doesn't understand its job."
