Koan of the Week – Here is the Stone

Santoka's Stone

Here is the stone
drenched with rain
that marks the way.

In the mountains, hikers build stone buddhas at the fork of the trail to point the way. Santoka says this wet stone points the way. How is this so for you?


  1. For me the rock, rooted to the earth reminds me that meditation, being still like a rock is the way to enlightenment. Also from the photo I see an ocean rock so everything washes over the rock but it stays put. This is like what we do with our thoughts. We let them pass over us; come and go like the tide but we stay firmly planted in the earth.

  2. Just as "every day is Saturday to a dog," all ways are good when you're a rock.
    The stone doesn't give a shucky darn about my path dilemmas.
