what is a kōan?

a kōan is studied to obtain bodhi.

bodhi is understanding of #zen.

#zen is happiness, love, peace, and success. #zen arises from the kōans like a flower from seeds. it can best be understood through the 3 laws of #zen.

the 3 laws of #zen are the basic concepts of #zen. a total understanding of the 3 laws is known as #zenlightenment.

#zenlightenment is the state of #zen achieved through total understanding of the 3 laws of #zen. it is also known as flow.

flow is the experience of total #zen which occurs during study, play, or sharing, as explained by the 3 laws.

the guru attained #zenlightenment through kōan study and was compelled by his bodhi to share it with others. so he founded a school.

the guru’s school is the world’s only #zenstitute. the school provides #zenstruction, social outreach, #zen personality tests, and #zentertainment, as well as preserving the kōan archives. the school is frequented by students, student-teachers, and #zenterns, and it serves as the center of #zen kōanunism.

#zen kōanunism is the kōmmunity of #zen kōanunists.

a #zen kōanunist subscribes to the kōans and works to understand the 3 laws of #zen.
