putting tape on a dog's head is especially hilarious. imagine ears, taped back. there's something zen about that. definitely we are just dogs pissing at the heavens in front of the ancient halls of the buddha.

Zuigan Gen Osho called to himself every day, "Master!" and answered, "Yes, sir!" Then he would say, "Be wide awake!" and answer, "Yes, sir!" "Henceforward, never be decieved by others!" "No, I won't!"

Mumon's Comment:
Old Zuigan buys and sells himself. He takes out a lot of god-masks and devil-masks and puts them on and plays with them. What for, eh? One calling and the other answering; one wide awake, the other saying he will never be deceived. If you stick to any of them, you will be a failure. If you imitate Zuigan, you will play the fox.

--The Gateless Gate (Mumonkan)

Act from the bottom of of your mind as Zuigan, it will be your own action, free of imitation.
