Today's Zen

OK… Remember this.

I am by no means ‘enlightened’. I enjoy these sayings, poems, etc. they can give you something to think about. But today’s’ ZEN Calendar… I don’t get it.

A monk asked Roso: “What is the wordless word?”
Roso replied with another question: “Where’s your mouth?”
The monk said: “I haven’t got one!”
“Then what do you eat with?” asked Roso.
The monk was silent.

My first response was, “This is a great smartass remark!!” but I fear I’ve missed the point… any one care to enlighten me??
