Daniel and Alicia talk about Zhaozhou's Dog.
I invited my soon-to-be wife Alicia Marley onto the podcast to talk about the first koan from The Gateless Barrier collection. She has no knowledge of zen koans, so I was wondering if her beginners perspective would help make things clear.
In this episode we talk about the title "The Gateless Barrier" (sometimes called The Gateless Gate, sometimes called The Barrier That Has No Gate)
And we talk about the Koan that is called "Zhaozhou's Dog"
