Description: In The Gateless Gate, the last line of this koan reads, “The monk attained some realization.” What did the monk realize? Why is this seemingly ordinary dialogue between the great master Jôshô and a monk worthy of our attention? These questions encapsulate the central theme of this inspiring talk.
