Wake Up!

The sound of the Han opens the period of meditation in a zendo.

Often inscibed on a Han: “Great is the matter of Birth and death; Life slips quickly by; Time waits for no one; Wake up, wake up; Don’t waste a moment!”


“Completely freed from yes and no;  great emptiness charged within;  no questions, no answers;  like a fish, like a fool.”

The Wandering Yogi
