Zen Stories

It is told that a Zen master once threw a person out for the window when that person asked him how to meditate.

In another story, it is told that when two monks were arguing over ownership of a cat in a Zen monastery, the master simply took the cat, cut it in half with meat cleaver and give one half to each monk.

It is told that these sort of shock tactics often bring on states of enlightenment.
