I think it was suppossed to symbolize the actual transmission of enlightenment from teacher to student somehow... but it means as much to me as imagining the same scene performed by the Three Stooges.

In any event, I'd need it explained to me...but since everyone who 'knows' is all of a sudden mysteriously lost for words... I might never know until I feel the need to research it more myself. and I could live with that.

Trust not dishonest gurus. Craving for soup, pain will bring. Steal their own soup they should.Take the hint before 12 years pass you should.

Why think you, dishonest they are? nothing to teach if even have they, dishonest makes them not. Formally, did not accept the apprentice, the guru has. Find your own way, each of us should. Enlightened, understand this story, you will. Reading more koans you, i suggest.

Encourage the stealing of soup he did. Insist he go to the restaurant and pay he should. Recieving stolen goods an offence it is.

You guys and girls get another 24 on day 9.

I want to hear something, even if you don't get it, say so.



"Na" in Tibetan means "pain," "ro" means "killing" and "pa" makes the word a noun. he was hit in the head by Tilopa to see if he really was a pain killer and since, upon hitting naropa, tilopa experienced no pain, transmission of the dharma was possible. hows that for throwing rocks at the moon?

Encourage nothing, he did. Hoping taught Tao can be, stupid Naropa had. Asking you from the fifth floor to jump, suicide encourager, makes me not.

Poor Nenipp.

You should follow your teacher blindly and believe all the crap he loads on you, because even if it doesn't seem so at the moment, it will eventually lead you to your goal.
I bet some lazy pseudo-guru made that story up, so that he could keep using his students!
That certainly wasn't my cup of tea (or soap)
