Not really a talk, more like 2 hours of Q&A, by Hyon Gak Sunim.

The koan of the day is: « what's the most disgusting thing? » The anecdote starts at 07:43 (until 14'10).

Below [or www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rqzyPSevzA] is part 1 (60').

#Buddhism is like the label on the water bottle: it might be a very accurate, even perfect, description of what's there, and yet it doesn't quench your needs.

#Zen  is in the direct experience of water, beyond the label.

The miracle in daily life lies in treating others like yourself. The other tricks by spiritual leaders are just to catch your attention.
