How Popular Education Works - 5

Or at least, the zen of it....

I've loved this zen story for a long time:
A student asked Soen Nakagawa during a meditation retreat, "I am very discouraged. What should I do?"

Soen replied, "Encourage others."

from Essential Zen edited by Kazuaki Tanahashi & Tensho Devis Schneider (Castle Books, NJ, 1996)
