Koans are not puzzles

Koans are not puzzles. Koans don’t even have to be questions. Many Zen teachers out there, including many famous ones, have no ideas of the stuff they are talking about, even though they wrote a lot of books about Zen/Buddhism. Yet, they are giving students koans.  You had better watch out for them. Throughout the history, it is always this kind of teachers who gave the public wrong perceptions of Buddhism.
