Zen Master Seung Sahn - Q & A in Warsaw

More good stuff from kwanumzen.com:

"Soen Sa Nim: Strong action is not necessary, O.K.? Very strong student! You only (hits the floor with his stick) understand this style, but this cup and this bell, are they the same or different? What can you say? Only this style (hits the floor with his stick) is not enough. You ask me, are they the same or different? You ask me!

Student: Are they the same or different?

Soen Sa Nim rings the bell and drinks from the cup. There is laughter."

What would Master Seung Sahn use for a skillful means if he didn't have that blankety-blank stick all the time?
