Transmission Dharma Combat

by on Apr 17, 2015Zen Master Dae Kwan

On April 15, 2001 Zen Master Dae Kwan received transmission from Zen Master Seung Sahn at Kye Ryong Sahn International Zen Center/Mu Sahn Sah.

Question: I have a question about this?just before we said, ?Homage to all the Buddhas.? But a Buddha is complete. It doesn?t need anything. Why give homage to the Buddhas?
Zen Master Dae Kwan: You already understand.
Q: So I ask you.
ZMDK: You?re looking at me, I?m looking at you.
Q: Only that?
ZMDK: Not enough?
Q: Thank you for your teaching.
ZMDK: You?re welcome.

Q: You get dharma transmission here at Kye Ryong Sahn. Kye means chicken. Ryong means dragon. What are you going to be, a chicken or a dragon?
ZMDK: You already understand.
Q: Please teach me.
ZMDK: What do you call me?
Q: Sifu [Chinese for teacher.]
ZMDK: That?s it!
Q: Thank you.
ZMDK: You?re welcome.

Q: You?re going to be a Zen Master and you took 500 precepts. I only took 10 precepts. Is your teaching going to be a lot better?
ZMDK: You already understand.
Q: Please teach me.
ZMDK: You are my teacher.
Q: Only that?
ZMDK: Not enough?
Q: Thank you for your teaching.
ZMDK: You?re welcome.

Q: We?ve known each other for over ten years. You?re my good teacher and also my good friend. Today you?re a Zen Master. So, what kind of relationship do we have now?
ZMDK: You already understand.
Q: Please teach me.
ZMDK: You are my best friend, not only good friend.
Q: Thank you.

Q: In his opening speech, Zen Master Dae Bong talked about many transmissions from Buddha. I want to ask one question. Before the ceremony I already knew what you did to become a Zen Master. So, when did you become a Zen Master?
ZMDK: You already understand.
Q: I?m asking you.
ZMDK: What are you doing now?
Q: I?m sitting on a cushion and asking a question.
ZMDK: Already appear, transmission.
Q: Thank you for your teaching.
ZMDK: You?re welcome.
