Tokusan was studying Zen under Ryutan.  They both sat in the lotus position
under a windblown pine.

Presently, a scribe approached with a message for Ryutan.  

"Go and meet the scribe and return with his message," Ryutan instructed

Tokusan rose and stumbled over a root of the pine.

Ryatan touched his foot and Tokusan reached enlightenment.


Each may find her own path to the way.  It is impossible to predict through
which events his path to openness will lead, or if it will be found at all.

Almost certainly, you increase your odds by attending Thursday Department
Tea.  4pm Today in the CS building 1st floor atrium.
