Suffering, Evil and Zen

Zen does not try to explain suffering or evil or the ultimate realities of life. How then does zen respond? By appropriate and compassionate action. Why is there suffering? So that you may respond to it. Why do I suffer? So that I may bear it. You are called, and you respond to the call. You come to be yourself only in this call and response.
