MEDITATION KOANS FOR NOW

A Koan is a Spiritual Puzzle traditionally used by Zen Masters to help their students concentrate during meditations. Koans call for intuition, reflection, contemplation and "aha!" insights. The most famous traditional Koan is, "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" (Spiritual answer: "Silence,"  because silence is zero decibels within the sound measurement continuum.)
