Zen

If useless things do not hang in your mind,
any season is a good season for you.

*

It is not necessary for the speach to come from the tongue.

*

The emperor asked Gudo: Where does the enlighted man go when he dies?
Gudo answered: I know not.
Why don't you know? asked the emperor.
Because I have not died yet, replied Gudo.
