Zen Dialogue 

Zen teachers train their young pupils to express themselves. Two Zen temples each had a child protégé. One childgoing to obtain vegetables each morningwould meet the other on the way. 

Where are you going?asked the one. 

I am going wherever my feet go,the other responded. 

This reply puzzled the first child who went to his teacher for help. "Tomorrow morning the teacher told him, when you meet that little fellowask him the same question. He will give you the same answerand then you ask him: 'Suppose you have no feetthen where are you going?' That will fix him." 

The children met again the following morning. 

Where are you going?asked the first child. 

I am going wherever the wind blows,answered the other. 

This again nonplussed the youngsterwho took his defeat to his teacher. 

Ask him where he is going if there is no wind,suggested the teacher. 

The next day the children met a third time. 

Where are you going?asked the first child. 

I am going to the market to buy vegetables,the other replied.
