A Flower for Mahakashyapa

As usual, my first evening in Dublin was spent in intense, learned discussion about life, the universe, Richard Dawkins and everything. My mind is, therefore, quite empty this morning. I shall, however, make a virtue of this by adopting the rules of Zen and the Art of Remarkable Blogging. Read to the end, disciples, and understand that this post is like the lotus flower the Lord Buddha gave to Mahakashyapa. It is that which cannot be said.
PS And, to my amazement, this post about nothing turns out to be my 500th. What can this mean?

  1. The PS has the effect of giving the 'Not yet anyway' post a somewhat koan-like nature. Anyway, I think the emptiness in your mind points to the possibility that lecturing to Jesuits in Ireland leads to enlightenment. Either that or they're stealing your mind; it's been known to happen.
