I know this is an old joke and when I came across it again it still made me smile. We all need a smile once in awhile and so thought it would be fun to share.
This Zen Buddhist Monk walks up to a hot dog stand and says to the vendor, "Make me one with everything". So the vendor makes him a hot dog with everything and then hands it to the Zen Monk.
The Monk gives him a twenty dollar bill. The vendor takes it, puts it in his cash register and shuts the door. The Zen Monk says, "Wait, where's my change? "The vendor replies with a smile, "Change must come from within".
Thanks for visiting. My Dharma name is Shinzen. I began studying Goshindo Karate under the watchful eye of Shihan Paul Dean in 1969. Yes, I now have gray hair. I am also Lay-ordained in Soto Zen under the tutelage of Rev. Nonin Chowaney of the Nebraska Zen Center.
