  • Summary


The story, “The Tailor and the Two Zen Masters,” reveals that the main purpose of a koan is concentration, because only concentration can lead to enlightenment. When we put down everything, with no preconceptions about anything, then we are really free and can understand the meaning of wisdom and to connect directly with God. Supreme Master also emphasized that true knowledge cannot be learned literally, but instead comes from the power of a living Master along with Self-realization.


Another story tells us that we achieve wisdom and enlightenment through the recognition and pursuit of our soul’s longing. Just as a perfectly forged sword is useless except in the hands of a skilful swordsperson, we must seek out enlightenment and then cultivate it.
