A student asked Ch'an Master Yunmen,
"If this student has not raised a single thought, is there a sin or not?"
Master Yunmen replied, "Mount Sumeru!"
Karma, destiny, dualism, nondualism, what Sijo meant when he said this, what Bodhidharma meant when he said that...all of these things have been discussed, debated, over campfires, over dinner, over Internet forums. Countless words have filled magazine articles and books about concepts like mushin, No Mind. There are books on Brazilian Jiujitsu. There are books on Zen. Constant arguments are waged across the Internet between people claiming to have the true Jeet Kune Do, to paint others as being less knowledgable about what Bruce Lee meant, to claim that knowledge for themselves.
Why did Master Yunmen respond; "Mount Sumeru!"?
