Eshun's Departure. Zen Koans

Views: 96


When Eshun, the Zen nun, was past sixty and about to leave this world, she asked some monks to pile up wood in the yard.
?
Seating herself firmly in the center of the funeral pyre, she had it set fire around the edges.
?
"O nun!" shouted one monk, "is it hot in there?"
?
"Such a matter would concern only a stupid person like yourself," answered Eshun.
?
The flames arose, and she passed away.
