Special psuedobonus for this page only: click on a panel and get that panel scanned at 200dpi. (Each panel is around 10-15K.) The image below has been reduced by a factor of four, but converted to grey scale so not quite so much information has been lost.
Panel 1: Zen Pigz Funnies. Gateless wall no. 5: ``Kyogen in the Tree''. Kyogen said: Zen is like a pig hanging by its teeth in a tree over the edge of a cliff. © 1993, 1996 Berglund F. Synd.
Panel 2: Its fore-trotters hold no branch, its rear trotters rest on no limb.
Panel 3: An under the tree another pig asks ``Why did Paul go to
Panel 4: Mumon's comment: In this situation, eloquence is of no use: you cannot use the Sutras even if you memorized them. If you can give the right answer, you open a road of life from death.
Panel 5: Otherwise you ought to live in the far future and ask Kai Holliston.
Panel 6: Kyogen is certainly a qat, spreading poison that closes its pupils' mouths, so their dead eyes cry!
