Ask your own question

The Reading:

Bassui said,  "When you decide to come here, you do so by yourself.  When you want to ask a question, you do it by yourself.  You do not depend on another nor do use the teachings of the Buddha... Clever worldly statements, the written word, reason and duty, discrimination and understanding, cannot reach this Zen."


Zen students often ask traditional questions.  How does this help them?
