Don’t make ‘difficult.’ Don’t make ‘easy.’ Don’t make anything. From moment to moment, just do it!” Tollbooth Bodhisattva One afternoon, Zen Master Seung Sahn and several of his students were driv- ing down Route I-95, from Providence, Rhode Island, to New York City. They chatted from time to time as they drove, with the students asking him questions about various things. At one point they stopped at a tollbooth. The driver hand- ed the tollbooth operator some money, and was waiting for his change. One of the students said to her through the open window, “Nice day, isn’t it?” “Yes,” she replied. “But, my goodness, where did all this wind come from?” After she gave them their change, they drove off. The car was quiet for several miles. Then Zen Master Seung Sahn turned to his students and said, “That was no ordinary woman at the tollbooth. That was Kwan Seum Bosal [the bodhisat- tva of compassion] asking you a great question: ‘Where did all this wind come from?’ What a wonderful koan! You must always be alert to the teaching that comes your way, all the time. Let go of your mind and then you can see what’s actually in front of you. So I ask you, where did all this wind come from?” No one could answer. “OK. I’ll give you a hint. Zen Master Man Gong wrote a poem that will help you: Everything is born by following the wind; everything dies by following the wind. When you find out where the wind comes from, there is no life, no death. When you have an answer ‘like-this,’ You see nature through spiritual eyes.” ♦ © 2006 by the Kwan Um School of Zen.
