Welcome to NoZen

Please, make yourself comfortable and relax. Maybe some tea, maybe some music, maybe just some silence or the sound of a small waterfall.

Find a style that pleases you and relaxes you and set yourself free to wander.

Maybe you'll find a koan that makes you laugh, or think, or maybe, just maybe, you'll find the one that sets your mind free.

But in the meantime, enjoy yourself.

If you have an older browser, I suggest using Broswer Default or Berries for your style sheet. Some of the other style sheets are so badly supported by other browsers that it may make this site unusable.

If you have a Palm Pilot or Windows CE device, this site can be downloaded to it to be browsed at your leisure. Enjoy Nozen in the park instead of being tied to your computer.

When Banzan was walking through a market, he overheard a conversation between a butcher and his customer.

"Give me the best piece of meat you have," said the customer.

"Everything in my shop is the best," replied the butcher. "You cannot find here any piece of meat that is not the best.

So it is with these koans.
