the guru wrote koans, taught meditation, and oversaw zenterns. he developed the 8-fold system of personalities, and he wrote more than one million haiku. he had many students, but few who took their studies seriously. instead, they played games in the guru’s courtyard.
the guru went on two adventures in the village. he climbed to the top of the tall mountain. he ran from the tyger. he argued with a sophist. he once picked a sunflower, but he also raised one in a pot on his desk. he used to celebrate #zenmas.
once, he was put on trial for his beliefs. he was defended by one lawyer, and prosecuted by another. after a disastrous close, he was found guilty and ordered to drink hemlock, which he was going to do until the tortoise talked him out of it.
