Yeah, Genpo Merzel ain't the Zen

People don't write me, thankfully, like they write Brad Warner about these things, but I would tend to agree with him.

Even though  us Rinzai folk are more "enlightenment-centric," the fact is, it still takes us years to do what Mr. Merzel claims to be able to do before lunch time.

This practice is not a quick fix; never was, and for those that are hurting (why else would anyone come to Buddhism?) Big Mind ™   is simply too fraught with danger to be considered in any way skillful means.
