"The over flowing cup of tea"
A Zen story say that Nan-in, a Japanese master received a University Professor who came to
inquire about Zen. Nan-in served tea. He poured a cup full and kept on pouring over
The Professor said: “It is overfull, no more will go in!” “Like this cup”, Nan-in said,
“you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you
first empty your cup?”
“It is not difficult to attain enlightenment, but it is difficult to keep a beginner’s
mind. There are many possibilities, but in the expert there are few.” Said Susuki
I n all Destination HarmonySeminars and Retreats we learn and practice techniques to empty
our cup from the ego to leave room to new possibilities.
