87. A Zen story has it that a monk visited a mountain hermit and asked him, 'Oh venerable master, how can I enter the Way?' The hermit replied with a question of his own, 'Do you hear the sound of that mountain stream?' The monk answered, 'Yes, I do'. Then the hermit said, 'Enter there! Enter there!'
When practising zazen you might ask yourself, 'What do I hear?' Pay careful attention to the sounds that accompany your practice of zazen. Then let the question arise, 'Who is hearing this sound?'
