Suzuki Shosan



                When a monk asked Suzuki Shosan to assign him a koan, Shosan told him to keep his attention focused on the character for Death. No other koan, he said, was necessary. “Keep that alone in your heart and let all else go.”

[Suzuki Shosan – Zen Masters of Japan: 170-80]
