Koan of silence 

Seems to me that to give an acceptable answer to a koan, one has to be in the ultimate Club

For example, a monk asked Zhaozhou, “What is the meaning of the ancestral teacher’s coming from the west?” 

Zhaozhou said, “The cypress tree in front of the hall.” 

Yeah.

That’s so deep.
