Zen Master Raven Tells Us How to Die

Raven

One evening toward the end of a meeting, Mole said, “I’ve heard that Zen is for old folks to teach them how to die. What do you think of that notion?”

Raven said, “It helps young folks that way, too.”

Mole asked, “They might have a fatal accident?”

Raven said, “I’m all for accidents.”
